The PSHCE curriculum intent

Our PSHCE curriculum aims to provide knowledge that will empower students to live happy, healthy, positive, responsible, and engaged lives. Our curriculum will enable students to identify and respond to risk effectively making decisions that promote good well-being.

We believe that the PSHCE curriculum should be sequenced in a way that is age-appropriate and responds to the local context of the community. As well as providing children with the knowledge to stay safe and healthy, we also aim to promote responsible living, where students are aspirational for their future and know the importance of the wider community and their responsibilities as an informed British citizen.

We will examine the key themes of health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Our curriculum tackles real-world issues that children will face by addressing misconceptions and exploring social stigma encouraging discussion and deep personal reflection.

Students are encouraged to share their opinions and ask questions to ensure that they have all the facts that will later help them make informed decisions.

In Year 7,8, and 9 this lesson is called PSHCE on students’ timetable. In Year’s 10 and 11 students are taught PSCHE and Religious Education through the core RP curriculum.
