Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE)

At Caldicott, PSHEE is taught weekly in all year groups by specialised teachers. They cover all elements of the new curriculum, through discussion, project work and investigation.

In a rapidly changing society, we aim to provide the boys with an understanding of their own ability to change what they do not agree with, help those who cannot help themselves and have a good understanding of how best to care for themselves, both physically and mentally. We pride ourselves on caring for the ‘whole child’.

PSHEE creates resilience and the knowledge to best prepare themselves for academic challenges, whilst strengthening healthy relationships and knowing how best to protect themselves from unhealthy relationships. They will understand how society functions, including a basic comprehension of economics and how multi-faceted an apparently obvious situation can be. We pride ourselves in being a fluid subject, which expands and changes as when society and boys' demands change.

Cross-curricular approaches are taken to all topics, hence developing different aspects of the boys’ understanding of a topic. Our projects have seen us work with many different stakeholders of our community, enhancing the well-being of not only our boys but also the people with whom we interact.
