"Judges felt that the internal spaces feel generous, bright and airy, and the exposed timber wall and ceiling surfaces of the CLT construction, together with the choice of internal finishes, create an internal environment which has been very well received by pupils and staff."

The Personal Development Curriculum

Our visionIcons

Our vision is to provide an outstanding Personal Development Curriculum (PDC) to support the character development of our students throughout their journey 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 (DEAR)
  • 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. In any given year, assemblies will focus on a wide variety of themes such as:

  • 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.
