‘Prepared for Life’ PSHE Curriculum 2017-2018
In September 2017, our PSHE provision changed for all of our students across the academy. Every student has a 30 minute lesson each Tuesday morning.
Our new PSHE curriculum provides a balanced and broadly-based programme which:
- Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
- Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The main aim is to ensure our students are ‘Prepare for Life’ when they leave TGAS. To do this we aim to foster a safe school community where students can learn, grow and develop positive, healthy behaviour for life. We want to nurture a secure learning environment where students can be inquisitive and curious, develop tolerance, empathy and self-esteem, and show respect and consideration for others. In addition to our aims, we want to make sure they are prepared for life experiences that, as adults, we might take for granted such as; knowing how to open a bank account, what happens when they fall in love, what should they know when they sign their first legal document, talking online without supervision. The new curriculum has been designed to ensure PSHE and safeguarding is inextricably linked.
Not only will the new PSHE provision ensure our students are ‘Prepare for Life’ after TGAS but they will also gain skills, values and respect that will improve our school community, raise attainment, build confidence and create new relationships.
