An introduction: What is PSHE?

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and the world of work.

Why is PSHE at Coloma important?

These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and the world of work.

“Through Coloma’s distinctive Catholic ethos it is hoped that each girl will reach her full personal, social and academic potential, achieve a confidence in herself and acquire a breadth of vision for adult life.” – Coloma’s Mission Statement

PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.

“A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. PSHE education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes – like teamwork, communication, and resilience – that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world, and are increasingly valued by employers.” – PSHE Association 2020

At Coloma, we promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of every pupil in the school.
