WHY IS PSHE EDUCATION IMPORTANT TO STUDENTS?
PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
Students agree that PSHE education is a vital part of their preparation for life, with 92% of those who have been taught the subject believing all young people should receive high-quality PSHE lessons.
The HOOD Project will be introduced in September 2021, and will focus on specific key skills for all young people including:
Drug and Alcohol Education
Crime Prevention in partnership with North Yorkshire Police
Healthy Relationships and Lifestyles
Action Planning and CV building.
Topics will be underpinned by ASDAN Qualifications and AQA Unit Award Scheme.
