PSHE Curriculum

As you are aware, we cover a wide range of topics within our PSHE curriculum to ensure our students have a good understanding of health and wellbeing, the wider world and relationships. Students have openly said they find the sessions covered within the PSHE curriculum ‘hard hitting’ but valuable towards their future lives and decisions.

I am writing to inform you that in the summer term we will be covering the delicate topics of Female Genital Mutilation and Relationship and Sex Education with all students across years 7-10. Both topics will be appropriately pitched for each year group and the staff members leading the sessions fully trained to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child being a part of these sessions, please do not hesitate to contact the school to discuss this.

Yours faithfully,

Amy Cook
Wider Curriculum Lead
