Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)


PSHE at Castle School

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is central to everything we do at Castle.  Every child has targets set in their Education, Health and Care Plan that are related to their social emotional and mental health and communication needs. These are addressed through our rich and varied curriculum.

Our aim for every child is to be able to respect and value themselves and others, to have fun learning, playing and connecting with others, to aim high and celebrate success, and to prepare for life in the wider community.  We focus on these aims at every opportunity, whatever the child is doing, be it in lessons, on visits such as horse riding, residential trips, work experience, and in all the times in between. 

For some of our pupils, discrete PSHE lessons are appropriate, where they are taught a range of topics and themes commensurate with the Department for Education statutory guidance. Pupils’ learning will be through activities and experiences which are designed to encourage learning of the appropriate skills and knowledge.
