Key Stage 3
Students have one timetabled lesson of PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) each week. The topics studied in this curriculum are made up of work on the statutory Relationships and Health Education (RSE) and well as Financial, Political and Careers elements. The purpose of these lessons is to provide students with the information and skills to be successful, active participants in the world around them, to know how to maintain positive relationships and how to stay safe both online and physically.
We believe that the social education of our students is vitally important as we prepare them for life outside Coleridge. Through exploring themes of inequality, diversity and identity as well as relationships and health, we believe we are encouraging our students to be active participants in their community and in society.
Key Stage 4
Students have one timetabled lesson of PSHRE (Personal, Social, Health, Religious & Economic Education). Here students follow all of the statutory guidelines regarding Relationships and Health Education (RSE) as well as discussing issues of diversity, discrimination, tolerance and personal identity.
An important part of the PSHRE curriculum is also the preparation for Post-16 studies. Within PSHRE lessons we look at the different routes available to students. We support them in making decisions about their next steps after Coleridge and in completing applications for work experience placements and post-16 education.
