Personal, Social, Health Education is a vital part of a young person’s development. Our curriculum, through all Key Stages is designed to encourage students to be their best person. Our overarching goal is to enable our students to become good citizens that contribute positively to our school but more importantly society after they leave us.
The Philosophy behind the curriculum is equipping students with knowledge and tools to enable them to make healthy, positive, informed choices for their own lives. From the moment students join us in Year 7 our lessons encourage healthy debate and actively encourage understanding of different perspectives. Diversity and difference are embraced; we make a point of teaching lessons that mirror/reflect that make up of society. At each Key Stage the curriculum reflects the journey of our young people to support their own understanding of themselves as well as the wider community we live in.
Individual lessons and Schemes of Work focus on building healthy relationships of all natures including family, friendships and romantic. Throughout lessons key personal skills such as self-esteem, confidence and respect are taught both explicitly and promoted implicitly.
