Proud to be an FMAT Academy

PSHE encompasses a statutory, whole school pursuit to educate our students on Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE); Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), Personal Development and Careers.  Our PSHE Lead is Ms Nicole Hau. 

In Key Stage 3, one lesson each week is devoted to a statutory learning programme on Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education. This also covers Relationships and Sex Education (RSE); and careers guidance.

In Key Stage 4 and 5, in addition to KS3 learning continuing at these progressive phases, students will develop their learning with a Personal Development programme of study.

Topics at the differing stages include (but not exhaustive) the following:

  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Healthy relationships
  • Personal finance
  • Drugs and Alcohol education
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Diversity, Prejudice and Discrimination
  • External influences; online and offline

The above is delivered via in house provision and additional learning opportunities are supplemented by external enrichment providers.
