The school’s PSHCE programme reflects the school’s values and ethos and encourages respect for other people. It is adapted to suit the differing needs of our students as they move through the school, and teachers pay close attention to the individuals within their groups.
The focus is on open and supportive sessions where every student is encouraged to contribute and feel safe and welcome. We encourage plenty of dialogue between tutor and tutees to speak, assert opinions or ask questions.
We cover three core key themes, which are Health & Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World, which we teach over the three terms. Each half term will have a school-wide focus, for example, 'Healthy Me' or 'Celebrating Difference'.
Our aim is to equip our students with the knowledge and skills that will help them outside of their academic studies and to become valued members of the community.
