PSHE is taught through three exciting personal development days, appropriate to their year group. Students will enjoy a variety of sessions based around the themes of Personal safety, Health, Relationships, Work, Finance, Citizenship and Community. Students will be encouraged to research and debate topics. Sessions are run by Academy staff, outside professionals such as the police, school nurses, primary care trust and theatre groups. The school are also supported by Street Teams who help us raise awareness and tackle online issues (e-safety) and child sexual exploitation.
