PSHE & Citizenship
PSHE and Citizenship is delivered to our students during Tutor Time. Each week tutors deliver a session through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.
The PSHE and Citizenship programme is a broad curriculum which is divided into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
The sessions are tailored for each year group and as well as providing important information for the wellbeing of our students, encourage the development of self-esteem, resilience and critical thinking.
Our PSHE and Citizenship sessions aims to equip students with the knowledge to live healthy, safe, productive, responsible lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions and positive learning and career choices. We follow the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study:
