Mental health & Mindfulness

PSHE is looking a little different so far this year. With ours being a curriculum which is reactive to what is happening locally, nationally and internationally, we spent the first half term focussing on Mental Health. Read more here...

Going forward, the PSHE team are continuing to develop new and exciting content to cover modern issues, including:

  • Changing Friendships
  • Building Healthy Relationships
  • The BLM movement
  • LGBTQ+
  • The impact of technology on our Mental and Emotional Health

In collaboration with the RE department, Mrs Mamun has put together a power point presentation about some of the foundations of the Islamic Faith and Ramadan during lockdown.  There are some fantastic links that give a valuable insight into Islam today.


If after viewing this you feel inspired to create your own presentation on Islam or any other belief system please do send this into us. It would be wonderful to see and share student work and obviously there would be housepoints when we return.

Results of the Year 9 Cannabis Debate

57% voted for legalising Cannabis because:

  • Legalisation would reduce criminalised behaviour and that there should be a license that monitors how the user is using weed and whether they are moving onto 1st class drugs.
  • Cannabis isn’t that dangerous compared to other illegal drugs
  • Can be used for medicinal purposes (cannabis oil).


39% voted against because:

  • Can cause problems with mental health
  • Makes people out of control
  • Potentially dangerous behaviour whilst high.


5% abstained because:

  • The situation is not black and white. They felt it depended on the persons health and mental health, they should be checked first, and the amount should be minimised (all difficult to administrate).
