Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic education is a programme of learning opportunities and experiences that help the pupils of Fazakerley High School to grow and develop as individuals and as members of their families and their communities.

PSHCEe equips children and young people with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. These effective programmes encourage our pupils to be enterprising and support them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively. It also enables our pupils to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes ensuring they live full and healthy lives now and in the future.
