"Recently I won the Mensa Child Genius Competition and I believe that it was possible because of the academic skills and the skills to perform in front of an audience and to keep calm under pressure that I acquired at Hesketh House."

There are timetabled PSHCE lessons throughout the year.  The health aspect of the subject is covered in the science curriculum.  In Y3 and Y4 pupils focus on the topics of feelings, affirmation, caring, friendship, co-operation, conflict resolution, problem solving and changes.  Pupils in Y5 and Y6 study aspects of the KS2 Citizenship scheme of work.

The aim of PSHCE is to encourage the pupils to value society and to value themselves, to value relationships and to value the environment.  This is achieved by facilitating the will to be responsible, to care and co-operate with others, to acquire and practise skills and to form and sustain good relationships. We carry this out through the medium of circle-time, class discussion and group work.

In PSHCE we learn how to treat people and we learn about our government.
