PSHE and RSE
The purpose of personal, social, health and economic education at HASU is to, alongside our whole personal development curriculum, equip our students with the knowledge and experiences they need to live healthy, happy and fulfilling adult lives.
We have carefully sequenced our PSHE curriculum around six themes:
- Holding Hands
- My relationships
- My body
- My feelings
- My wellbeing
- My Safety
Collectively, these six themes address both our statutory responsibility to deliver the DFE’s Health, Relationships and Sex Education framework (2019) and go beyond this, addressing concepts and themes which we have identified as important for the students of Sutton.
PSHE and RSE Lessons
The core PSHE curriculum is implemented through one 30 minute tutor time session per week, from Year 7 to Year 10. Students across the academy study the same themes in growing complexity.
The curriculum is further developed and enhanced through the Academy’s assembly programme, our drop down IID Days and wider initiatives and strategies implemented within academy life.
Relationships and Sex Education
As of 2020, the delivery of statutory Relationships and Sex education (RSE) and health education has become statutory in schools. More information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/relationships-education-relationships-and-sex-education-rse-and-health-education
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from some or all of sex education delivered as part of statutory RSE. Should you wish to withdraw your child from any/all of our RSE, we would request that you arrange a conversation with a member of the senior leadership team to discuss and ensure that your wishes are fully understood by the Academy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
An overview of our PHSE curriculum, including some exemplar resources, can be found attached below. Please note, that this curriculum is growing and developing as we grow and develop as an Academy, and some details may be subject to change or amendment.
