Together Students Achieve

PSHE

PSHE stands for personal, social and health education. It is a statutory subject in which students are taught a wide range of topics including bullying, online safety and relationships. They will also receive information about relevant topics such as extremism, knife crime and practical ways to understand and improve their mental health. 

Through our delivery of PSHE, we hope to equip our students with the knowledge and skills they need to manage their lives and thrive as both individuals and members of society now and in the future.

At The Sutton Academy, PSHE is taught fortnightly, on a rolling program. Students are taught by their form tutor for these lessons and are therefore able to develop positive relationships, which allow for open discussion, debate and questions in the classroom. Topics are taught in an age appropriate and sensitive manner. 

Careers

As part of our Careers and Aspirations provision, all students cover Careers and Aspirations content during selected PSHE lessons. All lessons are relevant to our students' needs and sequenced to support their careers learning. Sessions include a range of careers advice and guidance including transferable skills development, options advice and information about further destinations. 

Citizenship

A number of PSHE sessions are dedicated to Citizenship lessons. Citizenship education develops the knowledge, skills and understanding that our students need to play a full and active role in society as responsible citizens. Students will learn about politics, parliament and voting as well as human rights, justice, the law and the economy.

If you have any questions about any of the lessons, or would like to discuss the content further, please e-mail PSHE@thesuttonacademy.org.uk
