Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship & Economic Education (PSHCE)
Personal, social, health, citizenship and economic (PSHCE) education...
... is a planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that help the pupils of Lutterworth College grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and of social and economic communities.
PSHCE education deals with real life issues that affect all of us. It engages with the social and economic realities of our lives, experiences and attitudes.
Our PSHCE programme is delivered through mentor time throughout the whole school.
PSHCE is a basic entitlement for all students. It is embedded within the ethos of the College and is reflected in the general aims of the College. PSHCE is about what it is to be a person. Fundamentally, this is concerned with the exploration of values and attitudes, with the development of skills, and with the acquisition of relevant knowledge and understanding. This should enable students to lead confident, healthy, responsible lives as individuals and contributing members of society.
In College, students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the College and the wider community.
PSHCE aims to enable students to:
• value others and feel valued
• respect others and be respected
• be independent and interdependent
• behave responsibly
• have a concern for justice and uphold the rights of others
• understand the consequences of their actions
• treat others the way they would like to be treated.
PSHE gives students opportunities to reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, encompassing many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues in their lives and that of others in society, thus allowing them to build meaningful relationships.
PSHCE also promotes students’ well-being and self-esteem enabling them to take responsibility for their learning and future life choices.
PSHCE is the joint responsibility of the individual, the family, the College and the wider community. Through our PSHCE programme, individual students are encouraged to show respect for our common humanity, diversity and the differences between people.
