On the most recent PSHE day students learnt an array of skills and had many outside speakers come in to deliver sessions with them. Year 10 particularly followed a theme of health and wellbeing. They were rotated through interactive workshops looking at physical health, mental health and online safety. They also took part in a workshop from the Red Cross looking at basic first aid. The Year 9s as well as learning about the national political parties were carrying out workshops regarding hate crime, knife crime. They also had talks on mental health and where to turn to if they need help from the Samaritans and a sexual education talk from the local sexual health team. Year 8 were visited by the fire service who spoke about the dangers of arson, this linked in with a workshop the students were doing on peer pressure and how to handle it. For the Year 7s as well as them building on community cohesion work they also developed the poverty strand of Unicef’s global goals campaign. The Railway Children charity was in school to share the work they do with Indian children who are homeless. It was a very successful day with great feedback from the students. Please see the PSHE what and why document for more details.
