At Mossgate, Personal, Social, Health, Economic & Citizenship (PSHEC) is part of a whole school approach. Our planned programme of learning makes many links to other curriculum areas and and our schools values. 

PSHEC is an important and necessary part of all children’s education. The benefits are numerous as PSHEC prepares them to manage many of the most critical 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 while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.

PSHEC  contributes to personal development by helping children to build their personal identities, confidence and self-esteem, begin to think about career choices and understand what influences their decisions including financial ones. Developing self-understanding, empathy and the ability to work with others will help our children to enjoy healthy and productive relationships in all aspects of their lives.

PSHEC at Mossgate ensures that drug education, financial education and health and relationship education (HRE) are taught in a sensitive and age appropriate way.

When is PSHEC taught?

Our PSHEC programme is taught throughout the year with a different area of focus each half term so that we can raise the profile of the subject, engage with parents and Governors, review policies and evaluate best practice.
