Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic education (PSHCEe) at Thriftwood Academy

Central to all we do at Thriftwood is PSHCEe. The skills and information our children learn in these sessions are really ‘lessons for life’. PSHCEe’s mission is to enable all our children to have the skills, information and self-confidence to live their lives to the full whatever their needs.  

I have started a list of helpful (and reliable) websites on this page, but it is not exhaustive. Please let me know if you need information or advice on topics that these websites do not cover.

I am a trained teacher with a specialism in Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) and am on the Advisory Council of the PSHE Association. The Association  provides training and support for PSHE teachers, undertakes research and commissions for other organisations and lobbies the Government on behalf of PSHE.

If you have any issues or worries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Children's Commissioner for England - The Big Ask

The Children's Commissioner for England is running a survey for children. The Commissioner talks about this survey in an online video, which can be found here. 

We will be undertaking some explanatory/preparatory work in College for this in KS4. Students can complete this survey at home if they wish, or for any students without a device at home, we will also try to provide opportunities within College so they can take part.
