Subject Leader Citizenship & PSHE

Mrs Virgo-Furrs


Subject: Personal Social and Health Education

The PSHE curriculum intent is to provide a safe environment where our students develop their confidence, sense of responsibility and resilience when faced with challenge. To deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximize the outcomes for every child. Our PSHE curriculum equips students with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, nurturing mental and physical health.  

We further enable through curriculum the development of students’ respect, acceptance, and celebration of the diversity of modern society. It helps them to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up.  As PSHE is taught as a discrete subject, our students can develop an in-depth understanding of the importance of relationships, health, and well-being, connecting to the wider world and the impact this has on their everyday lives.   

We develop High Performance Learners by teaching students how to use meta-cognition in a wide range of thinking approaches and transfer knowledge from one circumstance to another, collaborating and sharing ideas. We encourage concern for society by supporting students to empathize with those less fortunate, to show and respect diversity as fundamental aspects of our society.
