We believe that PSCHE and RSE are vital to helping our pupils develop their social skills and self-esteem by recognising their social responsibilities and the importance of their roles in different communities. We teach this through a spiral curriculum, which explores issues and ideas that are relevant to our pupils in a sensitive and age appropriate way.
Our PSCHE and RSE curriculum allows pupils to develop a knowledge and understanding of healthy attitudes and lifestyles (including but not limited to: drugs and alcohol, diet and exercise, sex and relationships). Our aim is for our pupils to have respect for others and themselves, and recognise the experiences of people with different backgrounds including race, gender and religious beliefs. In addition to taught lessons, our school helps pupils become more self-aware and able to create and sustain positive relationships, and enables pupils to recognise their emotional needs and develop tools to manage and express these needs in a positive way.
