P.S.H.E / Citizenship at Alt Bridge

The PSHCE Curriculum offer is planned around the three key National Curriculum requirements of health and wellbeing, the wider world and relationships. The curriculum offer is to ensure that our students are well prepared for adulthood and are set up to achieve personal success in their chosen pathways

To help them to do this there is a strong emphasis on helping pupils to be well informed and stay safe through topics such as safety, sex and relationships, media and technology, bullying and peer pressure, friendship /getting along with others and street safe (knives, gangs and guns). By equipping pupils with this knowledge we are preparing our pupils to contribute positively to society

The PSHCE curriculum offer also provides a wealth of extracurricular opportunities which engage and motivate students which promote a positive impact on wellbeing and mental health now and into adulthood.

Pupils are encouraged to recognise that learning is a lifelong pursuit for example pupils will learn in the classroom but learning will continue e.g. as a parent or learning new job skills or social development through relationships with others into adulthood. 

The PSHCE Curriculum offer helps the School to meets the requirements from September 2020 to provide statutory sex and relationship education. The PSHCE Curriculum also contributes to whole School intentions around its statutory requirement to promote British values, E safety and safeguarding pupils both through lesson content and planned events which are listed below :
