Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) is a planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that help the students at Mowden Hall School grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and of social and economic communities. We are committed to ensuring each child thrives, feels secure and safe, whilst learning to respect and live with others

PSHEE equips students with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. PSHEE encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively. It also enables children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future. PSHEE is an important aspect of the school curriculum as it helps to increase our students independence and ultimately enables them to take responsibility for themselves. It prepares them for future roles as parents, employees and leaders. It underpins their employability through the development of personal and social skills which employers demand from their workforce. It makes a major contribution to the health and wellbeing of our students which ultimately will contribute to the health of the nation. It also contributes to the safety and protection of our students.


British values are actively promoted throughout the school and embedded within the PSHEE curriculum to ensure pupils are prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to respect the fundamental British values, as defined by the government, of:

  • democracy – actively promoted through the School Council.
  • rule of law – actively promoted through our class rules and the rules within our school community.
  • individual liberty – actively promoted through rights and responsibilities.
  • mutual respect – actively promoted through School’s Aims.
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs – actively promoted through curriculum and assemblies.
