Inspire - Transform - Succeed

PHSE

At Lostock College, we wanted our curriculum to have quality and depth regarding PSHE and Citizenship.   We wanted to make sure that we would confront several of the social issues that are prevalent in our student’s lives, so we implemented whole school Super Learning Days.  These days have been running since October 2015. 

The teaching of PSHE promotes independent thinking and learning by challenging students to think in an unusual approach to the logical thinking structure and to address topics that require critical thinking.  Students are given opportunities to discuss, share and explore their findings with their peers.

Although PSHE is not compulsory, the National Curriculum states that schools should make provision for this subject; by 2019, PSHE will be compulsory in all secondary schools. Currently at Lostock College, PSHE is taught to Year 7 & 8 pupils once a week and is delivered to the whole school in the form of Super Learning Days.

Students at Lostock College can benefit from specialist outside agencies e.g. St Johns Ambulance, Talk Shop Trafford (SRE), Barclays bank, Gamblers Anonymous, etc.  Some of parts of the curriculum has allowed students the opportunity for off-site education visits such as the Apprenticeship Road show, Museum of Science and Industry, the People’s History Museum, Mountain Climbing at Edale, Trafford Town Hall to meet the Mayor and the Leader of the Council, etc.
