PSHE education at Worthing High is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.
Aims of the PSHE Department
PSHE education is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which young people acquire knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. The PSHE curriculum equips pupils to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. The PSHE curriculum provides opportunities for students to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.
