Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education (PSHCE)

PSHCE at Enfield County School encourages our pupils to become active citizens by helping them become more active citizens by helping them to develop their social, moral, spiritual and cultural education.
There are elements of our curriculum which are statutory and must be covered for example Sex and Relationship Education.

PSHCE education is about enabling pupils to make their own decisions and to take responsibility for their own lives and their communities. We want our young people to leave school with an understanding of the political, legal and economic functions of adult society, and with the social and moral awareness to thrive in it.

All pupils in KS3 – KS4 take part in a weekly designated PSHCE quiz. The aim is for pupils to be discussing and debating current affairs and world news.

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

Students have weekly lessons which begin in the Autumn term. Students complete a scheme of work based on friendship which enables them to settle in to secondary school and make friends.

Following on from this, through the year students will work on various topics including: British values, diversity and identity, puberty and personal finance.

In the Spring term students have the chance to watch a Forum theatre play and take part in a workshop.

The topic of the workshop varies and will be based on relevant themes at the time. Previous topics have included: Healthy relationships, e-safety and cyberbullying and mental health.

All students in Year 9 have fortnightly lessons.

The topics explored in lessons include:


  • Self Esteem
  • Eating Disorder
  • Female Empowerment


  • Relationships
  • Conception
  • Contraception
  • STI’s

In the Spring term students have the chance to watch a Forum theatre play and take part in a workshop. This workshop will be on Sex and relationship education.

In the Autumn term Year 9 students have the opportunity to take part in the annual Citizenship Foundation Magistrates competition. Students are interviewed for roles ranging from lawyers, magistrates, ushers, legal advisor, witnesses and even the defendant.

Once a legal team has been selected they practise to compete in a competition with other schools, whilst learning about the various elements of the legal field.

We have won our local heat for the past 3 years, the regional heat for the last 2 years and came 6th in the 2017 national finals.

The Curriculum Deputy Headteacher, Ms C Egleton, will be happy to supply further detail and more information if required.
