Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) is an essential part of all students’ education. At Unified Academy, the PSHE curriculum enables all students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe, and prepared for life. Our PSHE programme and the universal PHSE offer aims to have an impact on both student’s academic and social outcomes. PSHE education contributes to our school’s statutory duties including the Equality Act (2010) to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum. Our PSHE offer addresses; substance misuse and its dangers, healthy eating, the importance of physical and mental health citizenship, British values, budgeting and other key skills for life. These are addressed through the core themes of ‘Health and Wellbeing’, ‘Living in the Wider World’ and ‘Relationships’.  Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is embedded within our PSHE framework.  PSHE at Unified Academy will address barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of all students.

At Unified Academy Religious Studies (RS) is delivered through our PSHE lessons and tutorial sessions. Religion and beliefs shape our values and our behaviour. RS develops students’ knowledge and understanding of the faiths that form part of contemporary society. It encourages young people to ask challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life and issues of right and wrong. RS develops students’ knowledge and understanding of the principal world faiths and also contributes to students’ personal development and well-being. Students should understand and respect the range of different cultures and spirituality within the school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for adult life in the modern world and a diverse society.

Students in Year 10 and 11 will work towards gaining BTEC Level 1 or 2 qualification in Personal Growth and Wellbeing.
