Personal & Social Education (PSE)

PSE addresses the learning outcomes within the Health and Wellbeing indicators in Curriculum for Excellence relating to mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing, planning for choices and change, substance misuse and relationships, sexual health and parenthood.

At Bathgate Academy we take a holistic approach to promoting health and wellbeing and strive to ensure that the learning environment supports young people;

  • To develop self awareness, self worth and respect for others
  • To meet challenges, manage change and build relationships
  • To experience personal achievement and build resilience and confidence
  • To develop physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing skills
  • To understand how decisions I make about my behaviour and relationships affect my physical and mental wellbeing
  • To understand that adults in my school community have a responsibility to look after me, listen to my concerns and involve others where necessary
  • To learn about where to find help and resources to inform choices
  • To assess and manage risk and understand the impact of risk taking behaviour
  • To reflect on my strengths and skills to help me make informed choices when planning my next steps
  • To acknowledge diversity and understand that it is everyone's responsibility to challenge discrimination

All pupils receive 1 period of PSE a week (rotation in S4) which is taught by their House Head. The type of content covered within PSE can be seen below.
