How do you teach PSHE?

Discussion in 'PSHE' started by Emski24, Jun 14, 2010.

  1. Hey all
    I was wondering how you all teach PSHE in secondary and how successful you find it? We currently teach it through drop down days but are currently looking at alternative methods for delivering the subject. Obviousley the ideal would be timetabled and taught by specialists but failing that argument working, what other options are out there that are working?

  3. Ours is very effective however yes it is timetabled and taught by specialists sorry...is there no hope of this at your school? What excuses are they giving?
     
  4. Hi!

    We currently teach PSHE combined with Citizenship as a discreet lesson timetabled once a week on a rotating basis, delivered by non-specialist staff who act as form tutors. As Citizenship co-ordinator I put all schemes of work, lesson plans, resources etc on the shared drive for staff to access. It's been delivered like this for the last few years but leads to problems with coherence and continuity...so we are now looking to move to actual Citizenship/PSHE 'days' whereby for one day every half term the timetable will be suspended and pupils will spend the whole day taking part in Citizenship and PSHE activities...on the one hand seems like a great idea in terms of coherence and is a great opportunity to incorporate PLT's and Active Citizenship - just a bit worried that we won't have enough time in the year to cover everything!
    What does anyone else think?
     
  5. This is how we currently deliver PSHE - through drop down days. However the main copncern for me is that if a pupil misses a day (say the SRE day) they have no SRE education for that year. It is also very difficult to track pupils participation & progress.
     
  6. We also now incorporate CZ with PSHEE in a discrete, once a fortnight timetabled lesson. I am qualified - and passionate - about both and find that the quality of learning is where I want it because I lead it rather than relying on others (which we used to do, and ended up not being taught at al or very drily without proper information without the embarrassment!)
    My new headteacher tried to get me as HOD to agree to having a drop down day, but I argued that legally there are too many implications to access if pupils are missing... and then other staff see it as a day to either do nothing or take pupils out for GCSE coursework. I won the argument....
