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.

Helping parents and carers talk to their children about relationships and sex

Talk the Talk (Film)

The film is an entertaining and engaging mix of drama and interviews with parents and teenagers. It's an excellent resource for parents wishing to get tips on dealing with SRE.
