Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education

The Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) curriculum is taught as an entitlement to pupils on a rotation basis, with a team of specialist teachers assigned to each subject area. Some elements are non-statutory requirements, but Relationships and Sex Education and Citizenship are statutory requirements and are delivered across the curriculum to all year groups. Computing is also a statutory requirement across Key Stages 3 and 4, this is delivered across Key Stage 3 within the ICT curriculum and across Key Stage 4 to Year 10 within the PSHCE curriculum.

The aims of implementing the PSHCE curriculum within our school is to equip all pupils with the knowledge and skills to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives so that they are able to move forward with confidence, health, independence and remain safe. These skills and values should enable our pupils to make a positive contribution to society as knowledgeable, considerate and responsible citizens.
