The PSHE curriculum will promote students’ physical emotional well-being and help our pupils to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, school, work and in the community.
In both Key stages the courses are developed with student need up most in our minds, which is why throughout the modules there are opportunities for student voice regarding not only the type of activities they take part in but also the content of the course and what is most relevant to them and their lives.
The personal development of students is a vital part of their secondary education. The non-statutory programme of study for personal wellbeing provides a context for schools to fulfil their legal responsibilities to promote the wellbeing of pupils and provide sex and relationships and drugs education. It also provides schools with an opportunity to focus on delivery of the skills identified in the framework for Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL). Education for economic wellbeing and financial capability aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of changing opportunities in learning and work.
Our PSHE can be broken down into a range of different aspects:
• Sex and Relationship Education
• Drugs Education
• Healthy Lifestyles
• Personal Wellbeing and Emotional Literacy
• Economic Wellbeing and Financial Awareness
• Careers Education and Guidance • Political Awareness
• Anti-Social Behaviour and the Law
• Thinking Skills, Study skills and Preparation for Exams
• Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people, including bullying, stereotyping, disability and discrimination.
• The development of appropriate values is fundamental to PSHE.
