Life Skills:

 

PSHE and Citizenship are delivered throughout all year groups at Birchensale Middle School through Life Skills lessons. Each child has a Life Skills lesson once per week. The school places a high value on the contribution they can make towards a student's development.

PSHE examines issues such as friendships, bullying, respecting others, healthy lifestyles and wellbeing, staying safe, economic and financial education and sex and relationship education.

Citizenship provides an introduction to how our local and national government works, community issues, rights and responsibilities and how the law operates.

During the year guest speakers and theatre groups are invited in and various events are held to highlight particular components of the programmes of study.
