Wellbeing Lesson

At Hornchurch high School we have high expectations of our children and strive to ensure that every child achieves academically, socially and personally through our school ethos and values of Kindness, Friendship, Resilience, Curiosity and Respect. Our PSHE programme (called ‘Well-being’ in the school curriculum), is rooted in our school values (aspire, believe, achieve) and aims to equip each child with a sound understanding of risk and the knowledge and skills required to safely and successfully make informed decisions that will aid them in navigating their way through life whilst at school and for the years that follow.

Students have 1 lesson a week of Wellbeing. The units of study are divided into four strands

  • Personal wellbeing and mental health
  • Relationships and sex education
  • Physical health and wellbeing
  • Social education.
