Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education is a vital part of the overall curriculum at Ermysted’s. As well as the provision set out below, it is embedded in the wider curriculum of taught subjects and the general ethos of the School.
Non-examined PSHCE features in Years 7 to 11

The timetabled curriculum is supported and enriched by an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. Through the statutory curriculum, the provision of PSHCE and the extra-curricular activities the school aims to develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We aim to ensure pupils have an acceptance and engagement with fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Our intention is to encourage values which will allow our pupils to participate fully and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
