At Haslingden High School our PSHE curriculum is relevant with meaningful content enabling students to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society, now and in later life. It encourages students to take safe risks by building their confidence in, and understanding of a wide range of topics and themes that are well-planned and sequenced throughout key stages 3 and 4.
Our approach to Citizenship is to provide our students with the knowledge and understanding to be able to develop the “whole child”. We are able to provide our students with a deep understanding of the diverse world around them which will ultimately benefit them in all areas of their education and the wider curriculum, and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and their communities.
Our Relationships and Sex and Health Education enables our children to learn how to be safe and healthy and to develop the skills and values that they will need to lead safe, fulfilling, enjoyable relationships. We aim to equip young people with the information to take responsibility for their sexual health and wellbeing.
We have a stable Careers Education programme at Haslingden High School delivered through PSHE curriculum time. The information and guidance they receive at the different stages of their education journey aims to encourage students to see the relevance of their studies and ultimately obtain a meaningful career or occupation.
