PSHEE: The Forever Programme
PSHEE and Careers Lead: Mr C Woodard
PSHEE and Careers Support Officer: Miss T Lathrope
Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHEE) at Sir John Leman High School falls under the umbrella of The Forever Programme: alongside Careers Education.
The aim of The Forever Programme (including PSHEE) is to prepare students for life, ensuring they are equipped to be successful personally, socially, healthily and economically, including navigating their career ambitions. The curriculum aims to “support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life”. Students will develop Intrapersonal skills required for self-management, interpersonal skills required for positive relationships in a wide variety of settings and skills of enquiry.
At Sir John Leman High School, students follow a curriculum based on the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study (Key Stages 3 and 4) both of which are in line with current DFE advice and guidance.
This programme of study covers three core themes:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the wider world: economic wellbeing, careers and the world of work
The Forever Programme is delivered in KS3 and KS4 in the form of: Tutor Time Programme (twice per week), Assemblies, Enrichment Mornings / Days, and Extra-curricular events and activities. Please see links below for details of the PSHE elements of The Forever Programme (plans subject to change):
Please also check our Careers at Sir John Leman page for more detailed information of the Careers element of The Forever Programme.
