Our Vision

Our vision is to create a department which:

 

  1. Supports students in acquiring the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to make well-informed and safe decisions about their future.
  2. Makes a positive contribution to our students’ behaviour, both at school and in the wider community.
  3. Provides an opportunity for students to reflect on, and potentially change, their attitudes and values, as well as being aware of the attitudes and values of other people.
  4. Helps students make positive learning and career choices in order to achieve personal and economic wellbeing in the future.
  5. Supports students in developing: an understanding of themselves; empathy for others; and the skills to work with a diverse range of people, both at school and in the future.
  6. Uses student voice to shape the topics we cover, in order to make it relevant and worthwhile for our students.

Key Stage 5

For Year 12 and 13, PSHCE works within the current Enrichment programme, which is led by Mrs Bola.

In PSHCE, we try to work with a number of different outside organisations and groups, through assemblies and during lesson time, so that students get to hear from certified experts for particular topics. Currently in line is a session that will be held by Brunel University on Finances and budgeting at University, Drive safe presentation to our year 12s and more focus on mental health and well-being.

 

The above overview may be subject to change. This is because some lessons depend on the scheduling of visits form outside organisations and the scheduling of the Citizenship timetable which will overlap with PSHE at certain times of the year.
