PSHE & CAREERS

PSHE Provision

We seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

We use the themes of ‘Living in the Wider World’, ‘Health and Well Being’ and ‘Relationships’ in order to prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, as well as to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students within the Academy.
