Keep a log of the good things people say about you. This can help you challenge your negative thoughts when you have them.

Arts and creativity are great for helping young people express and manage their emotions. These ideas for teenagers encourage spontaneity, original thinking and imagination and focus on the creative process rather than the end-product:

What is PSHE for at Meridian High School?

The aim of PSHE at Meridian is for our students to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.

The PSHE programme at Meridian takes a thematic approach to delivery and is informed by best practice guidance from the PSHE association. Delivered through a series of half-termly drop-down days, with a shared theme across all years delivered in an established safe environment largely by our tutors and pastoral staff. Where possible, we seek to enrich our students experiences by inviting to the school a range of speakers and facilitators from other agencies where relevant and apppropriate. Each year group follows a unique programme of study within the shared theme – ensuring that materials are presented at the appropriate stages of our students’ development.

Our tutor time programme supports a regularly weekly focus on PSHE related topics. We utilise the award-winning platform Votes for Schools which enables Meridian students to further develop their oracy skills and have a voice on the issues that affect them most. The weekly Tuesday debate topics explore SMSC, British Values and Prevent; students’ votes are collated and combined to a national vote the results of which are shared with a number of organisations and relevant government departments.

Why does PSHE as a subject matter?

The learning we undertake across the five years seeks to further safeguard students, supporting their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and to help prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. We aim to make our materials as context-specific to the lives of our young people as possible and be responsive to their needs.

What does PSHE help young people to achieve?

We tailor the programme to further instil our core behaviour values of resilience, ambition and respect as students learn about themselves and others. We believe that the development of these core values develops the emotional intelligence of our students and PSHE plays an essential role in this aspect of character development.
