Each form class is timetabled for one PSHE lesson each week, usually with their own class teacher. The year group team of teachers plan the particular content of lessons for their children, taking into account guidelines for each specialist subject, but also the experiences of their children. This ensures not only that each subject area is covered over the term, but also that pastoral staff have the time and flexibility within the timetable to tackle issues as they arise.
