Personal Development at Gateacre

PSHE and Citizenship is taught as an entitlement and is embraced by all staff.  The statutory aspects of Citizenship and Relationships, Sex and Health Education and Careers  are covered across the curriculum and within our Personal  Development Programme. This programme is delivered to students across all year groups every day in academic tutor time, timetabled lessons as well as themed days and events throughout the year . The aims of implementing the Personal Development Programme within our school is to equip all pupils with the knowledge and skills to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives so that they are able to move forward with confidence, health, independence and remain safe. These skills and values should enable our pupils to make a positive contribution to society as knowledgeable, considerate and responsible citizens.
