We believe that PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education) is pivotal to the development of our students. Our PSHE curriculum guides them to form good relationships; manage their own well-being and make positive contributions to the wider community.

The nature of our students’ emotional and social background demands that we are rigorous in planning a curriculum that meets their needs and is constantly adaptable to any changes that happen in their communities. It is our intention to deliver an accessible curriculum around relationships, sex and health education, self-regulation, ethics, citizenship and diversity education.

As our curriculum is based on students’ needs, it's important for us to involve the students and their parents in deciding what is taught. We do this by reviewing the topics on our curriculum map on an annual basis, with students and families. Any changes are added to the curriculum, and we regularly seek to ensure that new topics are planned with the best possible resources to provide a rich learning experience in the classroom.

Our PSHE programme is planned and delivered in accordance with all statutory guidance from Keeping Children Safe in Education which also informs our safeguarding policy. The curriculum plan provides opportunities for students to learn how to protect themselves from maltreatment; maintain good health and development, and grow up being well looked after by the adults around them so that they can enter adulthood successfully.
