Primary RSHE (PSHE)

Prior to becoming a teacher I was a police officer for 20 years. As a rugby coach I loved seeing the children in my team develop and progress and this became the motivation I needed to make a career change and become a teacher. For the last three years I have taught in Year 6 and I love it! What inspires me is seeing the children soak up all of the new information that I teach them- I love the questions that they ask! It really is a privilege to be part of their educational journey.

Hello! My name is Mr Clarke and I’m currently a Secondary School teacher of Drama and Head of PSHE at Whitefield School in North London. Teaching from year 7, all the way up to year 13. My favourite part of my job is having discussions and debates in lessons, where our views are challenged and we learn more about the world around us. Always be open to learning more and questioning what you see!

I am a teacher of RSHE and a Subject Leader for Religious Education. I am based on the sunny North West coast. I am passionate about good quality RSHE and RE as they are both subjects that support the development of the whole child. Wherever you look around, there is a stimulus for a good RSHE or RE lesson. You can take the skills learnt these subjects with you throughout whole life.

I am currently a teacher of Geography and Sociology at my school with responsibility for PSHE and Careers. I work with children between the ages of 11-16. My role involves preparing and coordinating the deliver of our PSHE programme in line with the RSE Statutory Guidance and ensuring all pupils have access to a comprehensive Careers education. One of the best parts of my job is the breadth and depth of conversations we have during our PSHE lessons, you can really go off on a tangent and make it meaningful and relevant for the children.

After completing my degree in English Language and Literature, I wanted to pursue my passion for the subject through teaching. When I’m not in class with my year 6 children, you’ll find me with my head in a book, or exploring new places!

Secondary RSHE (PSHE)

I am a Secondary Middle Leader who holds the Teaching and Learning Responsibility for PSHE within my school setting, and am also the Mental Health First Aid Lead Practitioner, a Specialist Leader of Education and an integral part of the commissioning school’s role in the ’Future in Mind’ initiative for Warrington. I achieved my Master of Arts in Education (focusing on meeting the Programme of Study requirements for PSHE) in 2017. I am passionate about promoting positive mental health and reducing the stigma attached to Mental Health illnesses, and have worked with colleagues in a variety of school settings and external support agencies to improve the in-school support available to young people across Warrington. My desire is for all young people to be educated in the skills and knowledge required to thrive in life, and supported in their learning in order to succeed as healthy, well-rounded citizens. Good quality PSHE is the vehicle for achieving this goal.
