A programme of Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education (PSHCEE) is included in the School Curriculum from Year 7 to Year 11, as well as through the many and varied co-curricular activities at Abbot’s Hill.
The aims of PSHCEE are to promote pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life in the 21st century. This includes the teaching of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) as required by the Department of Education (September 2020).
Schools in England must actively promote British values through the curriculum and in co-curricular activities. We therefore also recognise our obligation to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
The range of themes taught in the Senior school are relevant, meaningful and purposeful to the stage of the pupils development and are taught in an age appropriate manner.
Citizenship education and Careers education is also included within the curriculum and co-curriculum.
