Personal, Social and Health Education
Great emphasis is placed on the personal and social development of the individual.

The course includes active citizenship, health and emotional well-being, moral and spiritual development, preparing for lifelong learning and sustainable development and global issues.

We aim to extend the pupils' experiences by raising their awareness of Equal Opportunities. Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf operates an Equality Policy and believes that all young people should be enabled to maximise their abilities and potential in education and training irrespective of sex, race, colour, creed or disability. Equality of opportunity is the concern of the whole school, covering both the curriculum and the hidden curriculum. It is an integral part of the ethos of the school and involves teaching staff, non-teaching staff and auxiliaries.

Health Education is a significant and integral component of the curriculum for all pupils so that they may acquire knowledge and understanding of health issues and develop the appropriate skills and attitudes which lead to a responsible and healthy life-style.

Drug education and sex-education are taught within the framework of the school’s PSHE programme at appropriate stages in the pupil’s development. Due regard is given to parental co-operation, sensitivity to background, careful planning and the importance of a moral framework.
