PSHE

The Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) programme seeks to address the most serious issues that students face as they develop into adults; to give them the opportunity to become better informed so that they can make appropriate, mature and safe choices. 

The PSHE programme is delivered through the form tutor system and is tailored specifically to the needs of Calday students who study PSHE for one lesson a fortnight.  The programme seeks to use a wide range of resources, including outside speakers to support our students and help them develop into responsible, well-adjusted and well-informed young people.
