PSHCEE at The Snaith School is a planned programme of study that provides Pupils with the knowledge, skills and abilities to play a full and active part in society. The lessons prepare pupils to make the most of the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations.
PSHCEE aims to equip pupils with the sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions in their lives.
The teaching of PSHCEE equips pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned judgements.
