Our Intent

Here at the Academy we are proud of the work carried out to support and develop students personal, social and emotional health and wellbeing. This is done predominantly through our timetabled active tutorial work sessions whilst being supported by weekly assemblies.

Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) has in various forms been part of the National Curriculum for schools in UK since 2000. Some aspects, but not all, have been compulsory. PSHE education is defined by the school’s inspectorate OFSTED as a planned program to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. Its goal is to equip young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly.

Topics covered within PSHE are grouped in three core themes:

Health and wellbeing
Living in the wider world

Within these themes include

Alcohol Smoking and Drugs
Personal Health
Citizenship, Democracy and Human Rights
Careers and the world of work
Personal Finance
Family and Relationships
Sex Education
