PSHE Curriculum - Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education

The Values Curriculum covers the personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) of students. This follows statutory guidance on drugs education, financial & careers guidance (CIAG), sex and relationships education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and the diet for a healthy lifestyle (healthy Schools).

Included in the curriculum is the spiritual, social, moral and cultural education (SMSC) covering fundamental 'British Values' and the current issues of 'The Prevent Agenda' ensuring exposure to extremist views and political indoctrination is covered through the extra-curricular activities to ensure students are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views.

The values curriculum is divided into specific threads and themes to ensure the students have access to all the subjects above and the opportunity to build the skills, qualities and values that underpin their future role in society.
