Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education
The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019, made under sections 34 and 35 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, make Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education and Relationships and Sex Education RSE compulsory for all pupils receiving secondary education. They also make Health Education compulsory in all schools except independent schools. Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education continues to be compulsory in independent schools.The new curriculum will be mandatory from September 2020. Schools are encouraged to adopt the new curriculum early from September 2019. As a school we have chosen to become an early adopter of the curriculum guidelines. Full details of the Government statutory guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/relationships-education-rse-and-pshe.
PSHE is taught weekly by form tutors during two half hour lessons. The topics covered for each year group are shown on the schedule at the end of the page.
We also run PSHE and Citizenship activities throughout the year for students to cover topics and teach life skills that we feel should be explored more fully.
Details of these will be given to parents, carers and students as they occur throughout the year.
We encourage students to discuss PSHE topics with their parents/carers. If parents/carers have any queries or concerns regarding any PSHE content please do not hesitate to contact your child's form tutor or our PSHE coordinator Miss Warburton.
