Curriculum >> Key Stage 3 >> PSHCE
Education is not only about the gaining of knowledge and
essential skills, but about students’ personal development in its widest sense.
At DES our aim is for the personal development curriculum
to develop students’ self-esteem and emotional wellbeing. It enables children
to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect
The PSHCE programme is designed to enable students to:
responsibility and to make the most of their abilities
for distinguishing between right and wrong and considering issues of justice
become aware of
healthy, safe lifestyle choices
understanding of the environments in which they live
judgements, decisions and understand their rights and responsibilities
relationships and respect for others
These themes will be covered through Enhancement days,
Tutor time activities and Whole School and Year group assemblies.
