Personal Development and Careers Overview

Our visionIcons

At HASU every student accesses a thriving personal development curriculum throughout their time at the Academy. At HASU, personal development (PD) refers to “the development of knowledge, skills, dispositions and habits which will promote and support our students in leading healthy, happy and fulfilling adult lives.”

Our curriculum encompasses a wide range of themes including:

  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE)
  • Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
  • Social, Moral, Spiritual & Cultural Education (SMSC)
  • Careers Education
  • Citizenship Education

You can read more about these themes and more on our Personal Development Curriculum pages.

 

The Student Experience

Students at HASU experience the PD curriculum through a variety of channels:

  • Daily tutor time
  • Weekly assemblies
  • Termly ‘IID Day’ drop down days
  • Participation in our ‘IID Award’ character development programme
  • Enrichment
  • Educational visits

 

Tutor Time Programme

The tutor time programme ensures that every student experiences a consistent personal development curriculum, led by their tutor and supported by their Head of Year and the Academy Leadership Group. Every week, each tutor group will have a session of:

  • Drop everything and read
  • Assembly
  • PSHE
  • Citizenship
  • Healthy Harris

Assemblies at HASU

Assemblies are an opportunity for students to come together and learn together about a variety of themes. Assemblies are hosted by the Head of Year, and led by a wide range of staff and students. Assemblies often begin by celebrating the arts through student performances. During the 2019-20 academic year, assemblies focused on a wide range of themes, including:

  • Our academy values (Innovation, Integrity, and Discovery)
  • UK Parliament Week
  • Black History Month
  • European Week of Languages
  • Chinese New Year
  • Scholarship and challenge
  • Sports Relief

And so many more. Each assembly links to our wider personal development curriculum, often introducing, developing or building upon content studied in PSHE and Citizenship lessons.
