Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) is an important and necessary part of all students’ education at Teesside High School. In Years 7-9 and Years 12-13, all pupils receive one hour of PSHE per week with a dedicated teacher. In Years 10-11, pupils access 30 minutes per week of PSHE. In these lessons a broad range of topics are covered from four key areas: Citizenship, Environment, Health and Economic Well-Being. All topics are age specific and work is built on as pupils develop in maturity.
At our recent ISI Inspection (October 2014), our PSHE programme was commended as exemplary.
Pupils are assessed in their understanding of the topics covered by their teachers in a range of ways including quizzes, debate, discussion, project work, written work and activities.
Throughout all aspects of School we pride ourselves on a comprehensive and thorough Pastoral programme. As part of this provision we provide ‘Pastoral days’ which mean we collapse the School timetable for the day for students to bring to life and further explore some of the topics delivered in PSHE lessons.
