Pupils in S1-S6 study PSE (Personal and Social Education). Within this, they will be supported to achieve different qualifications including Saltire Awards (S1-6), the SQA Employability Award (usually in S4) and the SQA Wellbeing Award (usually in S5).

The general content is in this grid, but may vary depending on what the teachers identify as the priorities for different classes. PSE is taught as much as possible by the pupil’s own Guidance teacher, so there is weekly contact.
If you have any questions about the PSE topics, please make contact with your child’s Guidance teacher and we will be happy to discuss this. We revise topics regularly to ensure the topics are completely up-to-date.
