Safe practices in the delivery of PSHE:

The following guidance is adhered to by our tutor delivery team:

  • Read the session through before delivery in order to be prepared for the delivery of challenging content
  • The aim is to create a safe Teaching and Learning Environment

3 Points to remember

  • Establish Ground Rules for discussion
  • Distance the Learning – no personal examples
  • Encourage Questions (and allow for anonymous questions)

For additional expert support in answering students’ questions, refer to Julie Blyde – Child Protection Officer, Denver Jones – Student Welfare Officer -  or Carmel Tatlock – PSHE Coodinator

  • The content of PSHE sessions can lead to student disclosures.  If staff have concerns about a young person, they will follow our usual safeguarding procedures.
  • Denver Jones – our Welfare Officer is available for Staff as well as Student support.

How do we ensure quality of provision?

  • Full provision of curriculum materials ensures consistency of content delivery.
  • Tutor Training is given prior to delivery of Sex and Relationship Education Modules and the Financial Literacy module in year 10.  Individual advice and support is also available.
  • Tutor time is included on the quality assurance calendar and observed by SLT once per term

Safeguarding link

  • The PSHE curriculum raises student awareness of safeguarding issues by mirroring Childrens’ Services Team Safeguarding briefings delivered to staff.
  • Taken together, the whole academy community is enabled to act on safeguarding issues.
