PSHCE

Curriculum Intent

PSHE is taught with the intention of helping our students to make informed decisions in order to keep them happy, healthy and safe. We aim to educate them about acceptable and unacceptable behaviours, risk management, the law and where to get help and support. Our curriculum aims to prepare our pupils for adult life, to promote tolerance and respect and encourage them to express their ideas in a safe environment.

(Curriculum subject to change due to scheduling)
