Personal, Social, Health Education


The Beacon College has a comprehensive PSHE programme of study.


As students make the transition into post-16 education it will become more important to enable them to have broader opportunities to apply previously taught skills and newly learned skills to functional contexts.

This reflects the fact that the students are young adults who will require structured opportunities to enhance their personal independence as they move towards adulthood. This approach will be applied to all aspects of the PSHE curriculum.


The core themes within our PSHE curriculum are:


  • Health and Wellbeing
  •  Relationships 
  •  Living in the Wider World.


PSHE topics will be taught for a 6 week block every term (so every half term) and alternate with RSE topics.


Objectives have been adapted from the PSHE Association to ensure coverage of key learning.
