Figures, Rudiments and Lower Grammar

PSHE is taught as a separate curriculum subject in Figures (yr 7) and Rudiments (yr 8) and is assigned a 1 x 35 minute period per week. In Lower Grammar (yr9), it is assigned a 70 minute period per fortnight.

  • Physical well-being

  • Living in the wider world
  • Positive relationships
  • Decision making
  • Sex and relationships
