Our programme aims to fulfil our school’s responsibility to support students’ spiritual, moral and cultural development, as well as their mental and physical development, whilst preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they will encounter in life.
In addition, the aims of our programme are to provide students with:
- accurate and relevant knowledge;
- opportunities for them to turn their knowledge into personal understanding;
- opportunities to explore, clarify and, if necessary, challenge their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities; and
- the skills, language and strategies that they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.
Our programme makes a significant contribution towards students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, their behaviour and safety, as well as the school’s statutory responsibility to promote their wellbeing. It is also essential in safeguarding students in all aspects of their lives including preventing them from being drawn into extremism and radicalisation.
Extremism & Radicalisation:
Our safeguarding policy covers protecting and educating our students against extremism and radicalisation. This is covered in our PSHE curriculum and we provide parents with an information leaflet which can be viewed below.
