We believe that it is important for the PSHE programme to reflect the needs of our pupils.

We aim to equip our pupils with a sound understanding of risk, with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

In Key Stage 3, pupils cover a wide range of PSHE topics which include Prevent and Online Dangers from the Safety programme and Nutrition and Mental Health from the Personal Health programme. They also learn about Drugs and Alcohol and Bullying and Knife Crime which is from the Risky Behaviours programme as well as many other areas.

In Key Stage 4, all pupils follow an AQA QCF Award or Certificate in Personal and Social Development. The outcomes range from Entry Level to a Level 1 or 2 qualification. The pupils study a range of units including: diversity, sex and relationship education, drugs and alcohol and emotional wellbeing.

During these units, pupils are set tasks which need to be completed outside school, for example in the personal finance unit pupils are encouraged to independently open a bank or saving account.
