Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education at the Thomas Hardye School is an important part of the curriculum.
PSHCE is taught throughout the school in Year 9 by a dedicated team of teachers and students have one lesson per week throughout the school year, which is split between Citizenship and Health.
During the autumn, each student will spend half the term on Citizenship and half the term on Health
During the Spring and Autumn terms, students will spend one of the terms on Citizenship and the other term studying Health.
In Year 10, PSHCE is delivered in drop-down sessions with a wide variety of outside agencies and specialists as well as experienced teachers.
In Year 11, Citizenship education is delivered throughout the curriculum. Health education is delivered in drop-down sessions with a wide variety of outside agencies and specialists as well as experienced teachers.
Citizenship education aims to give students an understanding of their rights and responsibilities and familiarise them with issues, particularly linked to the Rights of the Child throughout the world.
Health education covers all aspects of Health from alcohol and drug use through to sexual health. The aim is to give students the tools and information they need to make informed choices regarding personal safety and relationships.
