Succeeding Together



Curriculum Intent


We aim to ensure our learners understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for adult life in modern Britain. We actively promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.

Curriculum Implementation


PSD helps students to develop life skills to ensure they are well prepared to respect and contribute to the wider society. We aim to do this by providing a safe, engaging learning environment for our pupils using a differentiated PSD curriculum and a range of workshops such as: CPR, anti-bullying, youth parliament, managing risks, making safe and responsible choices and healthy lifestyle and wellbeing. The use of scaffolding, solo taxonomy and Classroom Monitor enable us to monitor progress and ensure that all students access PSD.

Curriculum Impact


PSD will enable students to feel positive about who they are and to enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives. Through active learning opportunities, pupils will learn to recognise and manage risk, take increasing responsibility for themselves, their choices and behaviours and make positive contributions to their families, schools and communities.

Students will learn to recognise, develop and communicate their qualities, skills and attitudes. They build knowledge, confidence and self-esteem and make the most of their abilities. Students will learn to identify and articulate feelings and emotions learn to manage new or difficult situations positively and form and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of people.

Students will gain ASDAN qualifications at the end of Year 11.
