AQA Entry level 1, 2 & 3; Level 1 & 2 Award & Certificate

Outline of Course
Our PSHE programme is very popular with all our students, as it helps all students to understand key life choices that they will need to make throughout their lives. It also addresses the five outcomes of the Every Child Matters and is supported by Kettlebrook’s achievements in being awarded Healthy School’s Status.

How its taught
We actively teach the skills which will enable students to participate fully in the life choices they will have. We encourage student participation and contribution in lessons and place value on personal experience. In PSHE, students are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding of different topic areas, so that they can make informed decisions and take some responsibility for themselves. It helps them make real life choices and it also promotes healthy relationships in all aspects of their lives. This is undertaken in small groups; 1:1; presentations from outside speakers; through research, discussion & debate.

Topic Areas
We cover a variety of topic areas, including: Drugs Education; Sex and Relationship Education; Emotional Wellbeing; Healthy Lifestyles; Personal Safety; Applying for Jobs and POST 16 Courses; Diversity, Prejudice and Discrimination etc.

Students are encouraged to undertake related tasks at home including discussions with their parents/carers.
