PSHE (personal, social, health and economic education) covers a variety of topics that can be categorised into three groups:
- Health and Well-being

At Baylis Court School, PSHE is delivered in a number of ways:
1. PSHE Lessons
Year 7-9: Pupils have a one hour PSHE lesson every fortnight.
Year 10-13: On a Friday (Week A) tutor time is extended so that pupils have a 30 minute PSHE lesson with their form tutor – 8:30-9:00am.
2. Deeper Learning Days
Pupils take part in three deeper learning days throughout the year. The 2021-2022 dates are:

Pupils will have a Hall assembly led by a member of the Senior Team or Head of Department on a variety of topics including protected characteristics, British values, etc.

Once per fortnight pupils spend tutor time learning about British Values. Tutors will lead discussions on current issues in the news.
