PSHE

Key Stage 3

The KS3 PSHE curriculum, which includes timetabled lessons, tutor activities, the assembly programme and Alternative Curriculum Days, aims to prepare students for life in modern Britain effectively, developing their understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, tolerance and respect. It promotes equality of opportunity and diversity effectively so that students learn to engage with views, beliefs and opinions that are different from their own in considered ways. It provides students with meaningful opportunities to understand how to be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society. It teaches them about healthy relationships and healthy lifestyle choices. It prepares them for future success in education, employment or training. The Gatsby Benchmarks are used to develop and improve the school’s careers provision and enable a range of education and training providers to speak to students in all years. It ensures that they receive unbiased information about potential next steps, high-quality careers guidance and good-quality, meaningful opportunities to encounter the world of work.
