Our PSHE programme aims to help our students understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our students with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our students are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every student so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
We intend our students to be challenged to think independently in collaborative classroom communities. Students will demonstrate that they can support their views with reasons and there will be improvements in students communication skills, confidence and concentration.
Our PSHE curriculum is planed to develop learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which enables students to access the wider curriculum and to prepare students to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community. A planned curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the duties of the NC whereby schools must provide a ‘balanced and broadly based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life. A planned PSHE curriculum that incorporates the understanding of RSE so that students know more, remember more and understand more. As a result students will know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives. An RSE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum which enables pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives
