Article of the month: Article 19 (protection from violence, abuse and neglect).  Governments must do all they can to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them.


Personal Social Health and Economic Education is an important part of the curriculum at Greenbank. At Key Stage Three pupils have 1 hour of PSHE a fortnight and at Key Stage Four they have two twenty minute sessions in Personal Development Time each week. Although there is no National Curriculum for PSHE we follow the PSHE association guidelines for what to teach and when. As there are no levels there are no formative assessments however, pupils are assessed regularly in lessons using peer and self-assessment and short teacher marked tests and pieces of reflective writing.
