Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship
There are no formal examinations in this curriculum area.
This is a vital and stimulating part of the curriculum that is delivered within and across all subjects and on four
individual theme days known as SPEC Days.
Using a combination of guest speakers and school based sessions the intention is to make pupils well informed and more responsible global citizens.
Pupils will have an opportunity to debate issues, learn about relationships and develop skills to succeed in life.
Within Key Stage 4 pupils will be prepared for young adulthood by investigating life in society. Issues such as responsible sexual behaviour and drugs and alcohol abuse will be covered in a sensitive yet thought provoking way. Pupils will be given opportunity to make informed decisions and consider all the facts.
As part of this provision, pupils will undertake Careers guidance and experience two weeks work experience in Year 10 and a Super Learning Day in Year 11. Careers education is incorporated over the time spent in Years 10 & 11 as well as financial capability sessions.
