PSHE and Citizenship students at Charters School will develop their knowledge, understanding and critical thinking skills which will complement the personal qualities of each student. The PHSEC programme of study:
• Health and Mental wellbeing
• Relationships, Sex, Sexuality and Identity
• Living in the Wider World: Risk and Safety, Communities and Finance.
Students will obtain balanced information to encourage empathy regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and socio-economic position and in turn this will enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
This means students will:
- Question the so called ‘Norms’ in society. Develop confidence in being able to challenge when they think something is wrong i.e. ‘Rape Culture’, ‘Racism’
- Understand the diverse country/world they live in. Empathise with Gender identities: Gender fluidity, multi-faith, ethnic, race, appreciate difference.
- Critical thinking is key: question and assess what behaviours could change outcomes: Knife Crime, County Lines, Exploitation.
- Assessment is ipsative & reflective and not performance based.
