Personal Development and Citizenship

 

What we will do:

The Twickenham School PDC curriculum has been created with regard to Government and PSHE Association guidelines, and with the consultation of stakeholders including pupils, health professionals and community groups to ensure a high quality curriculum. The curriculum will equip pupils with knowledge across three broad areas:

            Health and Wellbeing

           To give students a sound understanding of risk and to teach them the knowledge and skills necessary to                 make safe and informed decisions, as well as where to seek help and guidance in order to keep themselves             mentally and physically safe and healthy. Students are also equipped with knowledge of alcohol, drugs and             other addictions, to enable them to make healthy decisions around these. Safeguarding topics which are                 taught explicitly have been chosen to reflect the specific needs of the cohort and the context in which it is               situated.  

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

To equip students with the knowledge required to develop and maintain healthy relationships based on trust and mutual respect. The curriculum also enables an age-appropriate understanding of issues surrounding sexual relationships, including medical, emotional, legal and moral issues, in compliance with statutory guidance.    

Living in the Wider World

          To prepare students for life and work in modern Britain through dedicated curriculum time used to develop            pupils’ aspirations and career planning, as well as their readiness for financial wellbeing. In the context of                fundamental British values and citizenship education, students are taught how a democracy works and how           this affects them, as well as how to participate in the local, national and international community.   

Specialist teaching

To ensure an excellent quality of education, the teaching of sex and relationships education is taught by specialist external providers. Throughout the topics covered in the PDC curriculum, we take advantage of the opportunities for experts in their fields to visit the school to teach lessons and to conduct further work with students outside of their timetabled PDC lessons.
