Curriculum Purpose

Preparing students for life after school

Our PSHCE curriculum will prepare students for life beyond school. This will be through a focus on careers and preparing them for the practicalities of life after school as well as preparing students to be able to engage articulately in discussion on a wide range of issues.

PSHCE is responsive to the needs of the year group 

Our PSHCE curriculum will meet statutory requirements whilst being responsive to the pastoral and safeguarding needs of each phase. Phase Leaders are members of the safeguarding team which allows the curriculum to be responsive, iterative and proactive in terms of national themes. 

The needs of our community

Our curriculum and lessons will support the community of students within our school and actively challenge inequalities through discussion of the protected characteristics. Each year group will consider at least one protected characteristic per year. This will be supported through Drop Down Days and wider events such as anti-bullying week and Black History Month. 

Teaching PSHCE for its intrinsic value

We believe that pastoral learning is as important as academic learning. We believe that the pastoral curriculum equips young people to be citizens with a burning passion to serve their communities.
