PSHE

Personal, Social and Health Education 

PSHE is a vital subject through which our students develop the knowledge, skills, values and competencies to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for a fulfilling life, long after they have left the school. Our PSHE lessons at Framingham Earl celebrate the unique attributes of all young people within our school community, boosting their confidence and self-esteem. Our curriculum is inclusive of all students, challenging stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination, and avoiding normative language which may exclude our young people. We place great value on non-judgmental and objective discussion of the issues we may need to navigate in our lives, highlighting the risks of certain choices, but demonstrating trust in our young people to negotiate their own path
