The delivery of Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) at Broadoak Academy seeks to equip all students with the skills and knowledge to become safe, responsible and community minded citizens. It aims to embed lifelong skills which can be transferred across subjects and beyond college life. It provides an opportunity for students to learn about and reflect upon spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues, enabling them to become informed and articulate citizens of their local, national and global communities.
The PSHCE programme is delivered by Tutors and prepares students for life in modern Britain, including promoting British Values. We provide students with a wealth of opportunities to explore their own values and beliefs, develop self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence, distinguish right from wrong, participate fully in a democratic society and acquire an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures. The RE department lead a range of different sessions which focus on the themes of diversity, equality and tolerance.
We aim to develop these skills and values across the curriculum and throughout school life through:
- The College values and ethos
- The Religious Education curriculum
- Weekly assemblies
- School Council and student voice opportunities
- Extra-curricular activities and trips
- Anti-bullying champions
- Offering a broad and balanced curriculum for all students
