Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education 

"PSHCE education is about developing young people's sense of identity, their capacity to relate to other people and handle setbacks. It is about developing the personal, social and emotional attitudes that will help them flourish in life and work."

 Alistair Macdonald, 2009.

Our Amazing PSHCE Curriculum

At St. James' our PSHCE education is taught in many different ways. Developing confidence, resilience and learning to become caring and responsible people is embedded in everything that we do. Below are just a few examples of PSHCE from children's books...

 Keeping Safe...

It is very important to know how to keep yourself safe.  

Watch this short video to remind yourself about the key 'Stranger Danger' messages.  Make sure you tell your friends too. 

At our school we pride ourselves on being a supportive community where people support and listen to one another. It's good to talk and share your worries, different feelings are all part of growing up and the adults at school are there to listen to you. 

Not everyone finds it easy to talk though, and school isn't open all of the time. Click on the image below to find out more about The Hive, a drop in cafe in Ashton on Wednesday evenings, where young people can talk to someone if they are worried or feeling down.

Another fantastic place to find advice and support around the clock is

 Keeping safe on the railway.

Travelling around on the train is brilliant but railway tracks can be very dangerous places so it is important to be safe. 

The British Transport Police have produced this leaflet to remind us about safety and security around railway tracks.
