EQUIPPING PUPILS FOR A HEALTHY, HAPPY AND PRODUCTIVE LIFE
PSHE is an important part of the curriculum at Birchfield. All pupils in Years 3 to 8 follow weekly lessons, led by their Form Tutor, in Personal, Social and Health Development. As well as learning about healthy relationships, exercise and diet, and economic education, our pupils learn how to be good citizens and to determine right from wrong. In addition, pupils are given coping strategies for the many challenges of the digital age.
Regular themed days, such as our new Mindfulness Day, allow pupils to reflect upon the natural world and how to look after themselves and their mental wellbeing.
