PSHE (KS3 / KS4 / KS5)

Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE)

All students follow a comprehensive scheme of work for Personal, Social, Health & Economic education. Our vision is to provide a hands-on and engaging curriculum that offers a platform for pupils to explore, debate and discuss real life topics and develop relevant life skills to enable them to become informed, empathetic and responsible citizens.  

The curriculum is delivered one hour per fortnight by form tutors covering a wide variety of topics where British Values are embedded throughout. In the sixth form, students learn and reflect upon their personal learning styles – using metacognitive approaches to develop skills in having a visionary approach, applying appropriate effort as well as putting into place the best systems and know how to appropriately practice skills. Assemblies, form-time activities and guest speakers are linked to lesson topics to provide a holistic delivery. Further details of the topics covered in each year group can be found in:

Sex and Relationships Education (SRE)

Across all year groups, SRE is covered in age appropriate topics. Some lessons are supported or delivered by specialist professionals, such as our School Health Advisor, Mrs Angela Teeling or the Health Education Company, Brook. We use high-quality materials which are developed through Manchester Healthy Schools, in consultation with young people from a number of schools. Within these sessions, sex is always discussed in the context of a healthy and safe relationship.

If parents require further information about the PSHE curriculum, they should contact the PSHE Co-ordinator, Miss C A Hewitt.
