PSHE, RSE and Safeguarding Curriculum

healthy minds curriculum additional personal development

The PSHE/RSE/safeguarding intent of our curriculum is implemented through our comprehensive聽Healthy Minds lessons, our tutor time and pastoral system as well as throughout our curriculum areas. The teaching of safeguarding is done in all year groups and across different subject areas to ensure that students utilise their learning to be safe.

Our PSHE/RSE and safeguarding curriculum is both planned in advance but also responsive to the needs of our pupils, based on what we hear and see. For instance, Year 7 begin their Healthy Minds curriculum with lessons on resilience, to support them with the challenges that starting secondary school might bring.聽
