At KS3, students build on the skills, attitudes, values, knowledge and understanding they have acquired and developed during the primary phase.
PSHEE acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people are experiencing, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students are encouraged to manage diverse relationships and the increasing influence of peers and the media. PSHEE allows them to be more confident in addressing the challenges of effective learning and making a full and active contribution to society.
