As part of your child’s education at Northampton School for Boys, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PHSE) education programme. Our programme focuses on four key themes: Health & Wellbeing, Living in the Wider World, Safety and Relationships. We believe these promote key values that are integral to our ethos; honesty, integrity, humility, perseverance, tolerance, and kindness as well as respect for all by all. We agree with the Department for Education that Parents and Carers are the prime educators for children on many of these matters, we therefore see the partnership between home and school as vital in complimenting and reinforcing this role.
PHSE is taught to every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. All PHSE teaching takes place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values of respect by all for all. In this, we uphold our commitment to equality, diversity, and respect by ensuring the curriculum is delivered with sensitivity, inclusivity and respect to all backgrounds and beliefs.
PSHE at Northampton School for Boys is overseen by the Director of PSHE, Helen Kennedy and Assistant Headteacher Lindsay Greenaway as well as our Careers and Enterprise Leader, Hannah Rickaby.
