PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the knowledge and skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students learn to manage diverse relationships, their online lives, and the increasing influence of peers and the media.

At key stage 4, students deepen knowledge and understanding, extend and rehearse skills, and further explore attitudes, values and attributes acquired during key stage 3. PSHE education reflects the fact that students are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking on greater responsibility for themselves and others.

Relationships and Sex education will also form an integrated part of PSHCE provision going forward. The school PSHCE education will meet the statutory RSE requirements and support the academy’s values of equality, inclusion and respect for all students and communities. The provision will meet students’ age and maturity levels, as well as their cultural and religious backgrounds and ensure students know how to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world.
