Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE education at Bluecoat Meres Academy offers students the opportunity to develop the understanding, knowledge and skills they need to lead safe, happy and healthy lives. It aims to help students understand how they are developing personally, socially and emotionally and explore a range of attitudes and values.
The programme of study for PSHE education at Bluecoat Meres includes the following topics: bullying, crime, cultural diversity, drug and alcohol education, healthy eating, online safety, road safety awareness, prejudice, social and emotional health, well-being, sex and relationships and peer pressure. Each year group experiences two full days per year off timetable to really engage with these important and relevant issues.
Our PSHE ‘drop down days’ are led by professionals and external providers, giving students a safe and personalised learning environment. This allows them to practice and develop the skills necessary to manage the moral, social and cultural issues that are integral to be a responsible global citizen.
