St John Fisher > PSCHEE

Welcome to PSCHEE

During PSCHEE lessons we aim to celebrate the shared values of our country and community, as well as the diversity we all bring to the world. We hope that through the PSCHEE curriculum students will develop a sense of personal and social responsibility, becoming active citizens in modern Britain.

Staff Structure

The PSCHEE curriculum is designed and led by Miss Hayward-Shott.

Lessons are delivered by a variety of different staff members across the school.

Curriculum at Key Stage Three

Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship, Emotional and Economic education is delivered through one lesson a fortnight to years seven and nine.

The PSCHEE curriculum in year eight is delivered by the Humanities departments.

Curriculum at KS4
