Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

Plymouth College seeks to produce happy, knowledgeable and caring young adults who, as independent citizens, will contribute responsibly to the local, national and global community. We believe that personal, social, health, citizenship, careers and economic education play a vital part in this development.

There is a structured PSHEe programme which is delivered over a minimum of six workshops each year. For each session the pupils work through a range of activities within their age group. Form tutors, staff with specialist knowledge, including the school nursing team, and external speakers are responsible for leading the sessions.

Assemblies and tutor time in all age groups also deal with moral issues; inspirational people and events; charity organisations and current affairs, so encouraging wider awareness, personal enquiry and a positive contribution. Aspects of the curriculum in most subjects also have relevance and some academic disciplines will engage more directly in this area, for example RE, Economics and Biology.
