PSHEE

The Personal, Social, Health, Emotional, and Economic Programme (PSHEE) at Aloha College Marbella is a planned program of learning that acknowledges the changes that young people experience while growing up. Its aims are to enable young people to acquire the knowledge, understanding, and skills they need to live healthy, happy, independent lives and to become responsible citizens in a global society.

Health and Relationship Education is embedded into the primary school programme, and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is a compulsory aspect taught in the secondary section.

PSHEE is a compulsory subject that is delivered to students from Year 1 through to Year 13. Careful consideration has been given to meet the needs of the pupils, the aims and ethos of the college, as well as the local community and environment.

Why is PSHEE Important?

The Board determines the School’s ethos, policies and educational philosophy as well as its organisational framework.

The principal aim of our Personal, Social, Health, Emotional, and Economic program at ACM is to support our learners in navigating their place in the world, knowing their rights and responsibilities, and maintaining healthy lifestyles and positive relationships in order to become socially adept and responsible members of society who strive to make a difference in the world.
It is an area of the curriculum that we believe must be developed in partnership with our parent body, and we therefore host regular parent workshops to share new initiatives and current developments in learning.

How is PSHEE Delivered?

PSHEE at Aloha College Marbella is delivered by a team of professionals who are trained and experienced in pastoral care and in identifying the growing needs presented to our students of diverse cultures who are growing up together in an international society. Delivered alongside our new Emotional Intelligence (EQ) programme, PSHEE facilitates the growth of emotional literacy, building resilience, developing focus, empathy and mindfulness whilst endeavouring to nurture mental and physical health to prepare them for life and work in a global context.

In the Primary School, a full programme is delivered in weekly sessions running from Year 1 through to Year 6, with some key themes also running into Reception and Nursery. The themes are delivered as a spiral curriculum during the year with each year group covering the same topic at the same time, but with age appropriate content.  

In the secondary section, students have one timetabled lesson per week. They are taught in their tutor groups, and assemblies are embedded within the program that cover certain themes related to PSHEE.

Certain topics of the curriculum are delivered by outside agencies that are specialists in their particular fields. These specialists include: health care professionals; study skills mentors; the police; mental health experts; first aiders and drug professionals.

As in all other subjects, teaching is varied and encourages flexible, active learning methods such as discussions, debating, role play, group work, presentations, reflecting, reviewing, and evaluating.

Our Programme of study for all key stages encourages critical thinking skills. It allows students to reflect upon their own values and attitudes, with the overall aim of instilling our core values of: Respect, Effort, Honesty, Care and Resilience.

What are the Core Themes?

The programme of study includes three core themes:

At ACM, fostering collaboration between teachers and students is a priority. We value feedback and actively encourage the students to give constructive insights through feedback forms. This collaborative approach aims to enhance the quality of education and provision received by students.
