PSHEE is an essential element of the curriculum at Gilbert Inglefield Academy. In this complex and challenging world, PSHEE lessons aim to support students by helping them to:

  • Live safe, healthy, and enjoyable lives;
  • Grow and develop; not only as individuals, but also as members of society in general;
  • Become fulfilled, productive, and responsible;
  • Form and maintain good relationships;
  • Make a positive difference to their own lives and the lives of others;
  • Clarify their own values and attitudes, and gain knowledge and understanding of those of other people;
  • Build their personal identities and self esteem;


PSHEE covers topics in years 5-8 in increasing depth including:

  • Well being and emotional health;
  • Physical activity;
  • Food and nutrition;
  • Disability;
  • Puberty;
  • Sex and relationships;
  • Drug education;
  • Fire and road safety;
  • Careers and personal finance;
