The Academy’s PSHE syllabus, taught during KS3, combines topics commonly explored as part of the academy’s leadership and citizenship programme. Pupils will learn about their rights and responsibilities, both as individuals and as part of the wider community, and will explore many of the issues faced by young people – both in and outside of the school environment. Pupils will learn about democracy and the rule of law, the English legal system, and gain an understanding of the political landscape and the importance of fundamental British values.
Pupils will also be taught practical life skills, such as how to manage their money effectively, how to budget and save, how to plan for their future careers and harness their entrepreneurial skills, how to foster positive and supportive relationships with others, and how to safeguard their physical and mental health.
