The aim of PSHE throughout key stages 3 and 4 is to enable every student to develop into a healthy, well-rounded and responsible adult. In addition, it helps to prepare them for the wider world and life after Broughton. This is achieved through a wide range of active learning styles. PSHE builds upon the knowledge and experiences the students have encountered at primary school.
Approaches to Teaching and Learning in PSHE
PSHE lessons encourage every student to participate fully reflect on their own opinions and views. The schemes of work have been structured in order to facilitate our aims in reaching the whole child. Each unit incorporates a range of tasks and variety of learning styles. In addition to using books, the latest IT resources will be provided to enable students to discover more about current affairs and allows them to research into certain areas.

Teachers are very passionate about PSHE and this enthusiasm enhances the interest of our students.
