PSHEE and RSE
PSHE and RSE Lead: C Fernandez, Assistant Headteacher
Our mission statement is to deliver all-round excellence and for our students to receive a well-rounded personal development curriculum alongside the academic curriculum. The Personal, Social, Health and Economic and the Relationship and Sex Education curriculum is spiral and builds on skills and knowledge that is age appropriate from Year 7 to Year 13. We aim to help our students understand the complex society in which they live, and equip them with the life skills and empathy to be a happy and successful member of the community. We look at a range of topics with an aim to support them in making informed choices about their own health and wellbeing, and give them the confidence and strength to keep themselves safe. Furthermore, the aim is to consider the reality of a modern and dynamic economy and how they can prepare themselves for the range of future pathways available to them. The programme follows three strands:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the Wider World
The RSE programme is integrated within the above strands. This is delivered as part of the tutor time programme and a one-hour PSHE lesson per fortnight with the form tutor, supported by the Pastoral Teams at all Key Stages. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum at Key Stage 3, and other aspects are included in religious education at Key Stage 3. [updated May 2020]
