Life Skills PSHE at Writhlington School
“Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain”
Writhlington Sixth Form is not just a place to nurture your academic success. It also provides opportunities and experiences for students to learn new skills and broaden their horizons.
The course will be run by the Sixth Form team together with a variety of outside speakers. Specialist outside speakers are invited in to deliver specific content. For example, the school nurse runs the life skills session on sexual health.
In Year 12 and 13, the life skills sessions will cover a wide range of vital issues such as:
drugs and alcohol education
mental health and well being
how to apply to jobs, apprenticeships and university
revision skills and managing study time
awareness on topical issues
