Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

In our sessions pupils learn about the importance of acting responsibly, empathising with others and understanding the consequences of their actions. This is not done through lecturing or preaching, but by engaging in classroom activities, discussion and sharing experiences that are relevant to real life.

The Safety Box teaches economic wellbeing and we aim to equip pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes that they can use both inside and outside school, we present to them the nature of the world of work, using entrepreneurs to speak about their particular businesses, we show them how they can start a business and inspire them to achieve.

Safety

Pupils should be able to keep themselves safe in the home, at school, while travelling, at work, in play, in sport and in leisure. Safety education helps them to recognise the potential risks.

The Safety Box school and youth programs complement the National Curriculum standards for personal, social and health education (PSHE), Enrichment and Citizenship.

We aim to improve the health and well-being of children and young adults up to age 19. Our aim is to work with schools and colleges to raise students’ attainment levels and exam results. At the same time we help with behavioural and bullying related issues.

The courses focus on teaching pupils the fundamentals of personal safety while building self esteem and reinforcing positive values such as respect for others. Special attention is given in cases where behavioural problems are an issue.
