Personal, Social Health, Careers, Citizenship and Economic Education

The Personal, Social Health, Careers, Citizenship and Economic Education (PSHCCE) programme plays a fundamental part in the development of the students at Lady Lumley’s School and underpins the ethos of the school.  The programme enables our students to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives and empower them to become a valuable member of society and therefore enhancing their life chances.  The PSHCCE programme contributes significantly to our students’ development and helps to promote the key attributes needed to live and work in a diverse society.

The majority of the programme is taught within the curriculum by subject teachers, who are able to specialise in their subject area. Other elements of the programme are taught by tutor teachers, senior teachers and guest speakers through the medium of tutor time and assemblies.  Each member of staff at Lady Lumley’s School is aware of the significant role that PSHCCE can play in the development of our students and therefore help to promote the content at all levels.

The majority of the PSHCCE programme in Years 7 – 11 is taught during tutor time, enabling the content to be delivered during ‘Theme Weeks’ which happen twice per half-term.  The content is varied and responds to specific needs as they arise or are identified through surveys such as the Growing Up in North Yorkshire Survey. This allows a flexible and varied programme to be taught.  The delivery of the Theme Weeks through tutor time provides a number of pastoral benefits for our students and enable the student and tutor’s working relationship to flourish.
