PSHEE is an important aspect of education at King’s. It fits in well with the School’s ethos of helping pupils feel valued, respected and supported as part of the School and wider community, and prepared for adult life.
PSHEE at King’s is fully compliant with Government requirements for the subject but goes beyond this to help develop pupils as rounded, informed human beings in an ever changing world. It is taught formally and informally across all areas of school life. In the classrooms and in the boarding houses, values and issues such as loyalty, respect, anti-bullying and personal safety become part of the fabric of school life. An annual PSHEE whole school awareness day on a given topic such as Bullying or Body Image and various 6th Form enrichment talks, help raise and address issues that are vital for all pupils.
The formal PSHEE curriculum is delivered throughout the 3rd, 4th and 5th Form in a bi-weekly lesson by a variety of staff. Every pupil receives a three or four lesson block of teaching on a variety of topics including:careers
In 4th Form Religious Studies, issues of radicalisation, faith abuse, trafficking and sexuality are also investigated.
PSHEE at King’s embodies what the School is as a community and aims to give the pupils the opportunity to be the best they can be as friends, pupils, citizens, and young men and women in the 21st Century.
