PHSE is taken to mean "Personal, Health and Social Education". The purposes of the programme at Haileybury are:
To support and develop the self-esteem of all pupils
To encourage care and respect and responsibility towards others
To provide a programme which imparts knowledge, develops skills and explores values regarding the physical, sexual, moral, social and vocational self
To develop skills for building personal relationships
To recognise the worth of pupils' own and others' achievements
To enable pupils to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and behaviour
Almost everything of life at Haileybury - be it formal lessons, discussing a report with your tutor, rehearsing a play, relaxation time in-house or on the sports fields - will inevitably involve the development of a pupil's moral, social and personal sensibilities. These channels, however, do not always provide sufficient room for more in-depth discussion and development of the understanding of PHSE issues.
PHSE at Haileybury is further enhanced by a programme of visiting speakers on a variety of topics. Parents are also welcome to many of these lectures outlined within the Lecture Programme.
