PSD (Personal and Social Development)
Students have one lesson of PSD per fortnight in Years 8, 10, and 11. This is delivered through the E2L curriculum in Year 7.
There is no final accredited examination.
The course is designed to embody our school values of respect, responsibility, and resilience, as well as serving as a method of delivery for the statutory RSE requirements, religious education, careers education, citizenship, and spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development.
To ensure we are delivering the most appropriate and useful provision for the local context, we regularly consult with families, students, staff, and other stakeholders.
The aim of the course is to support students in developing the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepare for life and work in modern Britain, including resilience, self-esteem, risk management, team working and critical thinking.
