Personal Development at SSHS is committed to providing a high quality educational experience for all pupils. Our personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE) curriculum brings together citizenship with personal well-being, whilst promoting fundamental British values. Although PSHCE is taught through dedicated lessons, it also underpins many activities, assemblies, educational visits and extra-curricular clubs. It is intended that we will offer engaging sessions including many visits from external speakers which enable our learners to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
