“I enjoy PRIDE lessons because they are more project based and we learn about real issues.”

Year 9 student

    The core aim of the PRIDE curriculum is to prepare our students for life in modern Britain. It is our programme for the more traditional PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and RSE (Relationships and Sex Education). Topics taught fall into the following core themes;

    Core Theme 1: Health and Wellbeing Core Theme 2: Relationships Core Theme 3: Living in the Wider World

    Topic areas:

    Personal identity

    Healthy lifestyles

    Keeping safe

    Topic areas:

    Healthy Relationships

    Relationships and sex education

    Relationship safety

    Valuing difference

    Topic areas:

    Rights and responsibilities

    Economic wellbeing

    Employability and enterprise

    Career progression

    The programme covers statutory themes as well as a personalised curriculum tailored to the issues that our students tell us they are facing through our student voice PRIDE questionnaire at the beginning of each year.

    Students follow a spiral curriculum from years 7 to 11, allowing them to revisit concepts and topic areas, each time extending knowledge, deepening understanding and developing skills that are appropriate to their age group.

    Please see below further details of our current PRIDE curriculum and some useful links to support for students and parents.
