PSHCEE at The Snaith School is a planned programme of study that provides Pupils with the knowledge, skills and abilities to live a healthy happy and safe life now and in the future. The lessons prepare pupils to make the most of the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations. The teaching of PSHCE equips pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned judgements
Key Stage 3 Curriculum
In year 7, 8 and 9 students will be taught on a rotation of topics, meaning they will be taught 6 topics by 3 teachers throughout the course of the year.

They will also look at friendships and be introduced to the topic of exploitation by knowing how to spot it and how to keep themselves safe online. They will cover a careers topic, taking time to look at a range of possible careers, a health topic, covering eating, smoking and vaping and a citizenship topic where they will create their own country.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum
Year 10 – Pupils have just one lesson a fortnight and spend time looking at health issues, including sex and relationships, contraception and sexually transmitted infections. They will also look at drugs and alcohol, stress and anxiety. They will have some time dedicated to revision for their RE exam in the summer term before preparing for work experience.
Year 11 – When students return from work experience they complete a review and a personal statement which contribute to the college application process. After Christmas they return and learn vital skills in first aid before having supervised revision time.
Pupils are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to play an active role in society and lead successful lives.
