PSHE provision at Maple Medical PRU is designed to meet the individual needs of pupils and is based on the collaboration and support of local agencies and other schools as well as following the PSHE Association Programme of Study where appropriate. The Scheme of Work is intended as a guide and content may be amended/omitted to meet the individual needs of pupils within Maple.

Local Agencies play an important role in supporting the teaching of PSHE and supplement the topics and issues taught by staff. Staff work closely with CAHMS support workers who regularly visit Jasp pupils for one to one sessions. A School Nurse from the School Nursing service visits Maple once every half term for an afternoon drop in session and pupils are offered an opportunity to meet her individually for a one to one session. Formal referrals are also made by staff at Maple for any pupil who needs extra input. The School Nurse also supplements teaching in any area which affects health for example, smoking alcohol, cancer prevention.
