PSHEE Policy


This policy gives guidance to staff on Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) and should be read alongside other policies that are pertinent to teaching and learning. 

At The Link School we recognise that PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills, values and understanding they need to lead confident, capable and caring lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. PSHE plans to prepare pupils with the skills they need to manage now and in the future. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the school and local community. Pupils will reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. 

All learners spiritual, moral, social and cultural values will be respected, and those whose values maybe different from the majority will always be shown great sensitivity. 

Aims and objectives: 

PSHE education is inextricably linked to the Link School values and ethos. We believe that each learner will be valued as an individual and enabled to develop intellectually, socially and emotionally within a caring, purposeful and flexible framework. In particular, PSHE education support the aims: 

  • To provide pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens. 
  • To provide pupils with the confidence to recognise their own self-worth, to work well with others and to become increasingly responsible for their own learning. 
  • To provide a high quality and appropriate environment in which learners are encouraged to develop to their full potential; 
  • To recognise that our learners need significant support but to encourage the greatest possible independence of thought and action; 
  • To promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each learner. 

PSHE Curriculum and programme of study 

The PSHE curriculum is based on three core themes and planning is centred on this programme of study. 

  • Health and Wellbeing 
  • Relationships
