Head of PSHE & Citizenship and Careers Lead: Mrs Anna Hall anna.hall@jhanson.hants.sch.uk  


PSHE and Citizenship are successfully taught through five off timetable days and link into the Literacy at tutor time program. 

The sessions are delivered sensitively by our own staff as we take our responsibility of preparing students for life very seriously, and as such are eager that these experiences will provide our young people with the learning opportunities they need to become well-rounded adults, in each of the following areas:
Personal and Social Education
Health, Sex and Relationships Education
Careers Education and Guidance
Economic Wellbeing and Financial Capability

These areas are planned and developed by a small team of staff to ensure a consistent approach to PSHE & Citizenship, and where possible with the expertise of outside agencies.
The PSHE and Citizenship curriculum has been written to ensure that we are making the best of local opportunities to support students in all aspects of their personal and social development.
For each year group visitors may include:
Year 7 –Hampshire Fire Service, the School Nurse and Test Valley Borough Council.
Year 8 –Hampshire Road Safety, Simon Says – a bereavement charity, Andover Mind, Lloyds Bank, Science ambassadors and local businesses.
Year 9- Winchester university, Stacey Miller – a cannabis workshop, Hampshire Road safety, the School Nurse and Andover College.
Year 10 – CAMHs, the School Nurse, the Junction, Stacey Miller – a self-harm workshop, The Crisis Centre, The Teenage Cancer Trust, Winchester university, Peter Symonds and BCOT.
Year 11 – over 50 local businesses and post 16 providers for the careers fair, as well as many more throughout the year.

We also explore PREVENT; a government program to spot the signs of radicalization, and teach students about issues such as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Child Sexual Exploitation, Consent and Forced Marriages. There is a heightened focus on these areas across the country, to ensure our young people are educated and kept safe.


The school is committed to supporting students’ well-being and their mental and emotional health is at the forefront of what we offer.  We run five parents information evenings in the spring / summer terms to support parents with Mental Health, Cyber Safety, Online Gaming, Positive Parenting and Drug & Alcohol awareness.  Parents will get invites via ParentMail for these events.


We also offer regular well-being slots with a local Reiki practitioner, and current JHCS parent, Hayley Butt of the REAL therapy room.  She can be contacted directly on: Hayley.butt@sky.com .
