PSHCE

Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education          Shaping my Future


In Hebburn Comprehensive School, the values of democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are taught explicitly through PSHE, SMSC and RE.

PSHCEE occurs in Form Groups, during registration every morning.  All pupils have two PSHE sessions, one Careers session (Shaping my future), one assembly (which is linked to the PSHCEE theme) and one reading session every week.

During the PSHCEE sessions, pupils cover the following topics for each year group throughout the year.
