Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. Our students enjoy two PSHE sessions each week delivered by form tutors during our tutorial programme. Our PSHE education covers economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as personal safety. Relationships and sex education (RSE) is an important part of PSHE education. Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is compulsory for all secondary school pupils. PSHE education helps young people to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
There are three core themes:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
Please find here useful links to support parents/carers:

Please find below the curriculum overview for PSHE across each year group, outlining the key content covered at Mark Rutherford School.
