At The Stockwood Park Academy, RSHCE is taught twice a fortnight. The aim is to help children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety, social media and unhealthy relationships.
RSCHE also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitides, like teamwork, communication and resilience. Through our subject, students will be prepared to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the modern world, becoming equipped with the skills valued by employers.
