Personal, social, health and economic (PSHRE) education has now been part of the National Curriculum for over 10 years and is intended to support pupils’ learning and personal development.

Personal, social, health and economic education is a planned programme to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. Effective PSHRE education is intended to help equip them with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively, and responsibly.

Through this programme, pupils can reflect on and evaluate their achievements and strengths in all areas of their lives and recognise their own worth. They can demonstrate respect for differences between people.  They can recognise some strong emotions and identify ways of managing these emotions positively.

At Walthamstow Academy we have an extensive tutor programme. Our PSHRE curriculum takes place within this time. Each half term, our students explore a quote that links to the school values of respect, ambition, and determination. The assemblies then link to this quote and the students reflect on this the following day.

Please see our updated pastoral curriculum for the remainder of HT3 here.

Our quote for half term 3 links to our value of “Determination”
