“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
The world is becoming increasingly complex and difficult to navigate. The PSHE curriculum is designed to ensure that students develop core skills that will enable them to succeed, not in spite of these challenges, but because of them. Our students will learn how to be resilient, reflective and safe in the choices they make. They will understand that by investing in their personal education, they will prosper academically and they will be able to make a meaningful contribution to society. The PSHE curriculum is carefully sequenced to ensure that core skills are built upon at each key stage. Additionally, the curriculum has been designed to complement subjects such as Science, Computing and PE so that students have increased opportunities to embed, practise and apply new knowledge to real life situations.
Our curriculum is designed to celebrate diversity and foster an inclusive school environment. Students learn and understand the value of being outward looking, tolerant and understanding of others. They are aware that this is crucial to keeping each other safe. Students are aware of their duties as citizens and the legal provisions that protect them. Our relationship education demonstrates to students that there are many different types of families and relationships and they are all important to our society. The PSHE curriculum is supplemented by external agencies who deliver specialist sessions for our RSE programme. This provides students with further opportunities to embed their PSHE knowledge beyond the classroom.
