PSHE and Citizenship

A new Key Stage 3 Health and Citizenship course was been introduced at Haygrove School in September 2014. The course was developed by teachers, Heads of Year and students working together to create a curriculum, which progressively builds students breadth of knowledge as they progress through Years 7, 8 and 9. The course aims to:

  • Encourages students to get involved in school and community life.
  • Link the Haygrove school community with our neighbours and community organisations.
  • Support inclusion and promote positive behaviour, equal opportunities, respect and responsibility.
  • Providing students with a forum to discuss personal and social issues regarding their health in a safe environment.

Throughout Year 7, 8 and 9 students will follow a programme of PSHCE that is integrated across the school curriculum. In Years 10 and 11 the subject is delivered in conjunction with other spiritual, moral, social and cultural education via a programme of enrichment days.

Education for citizenship equips young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life. Citizenship encourages them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate. By exploring issues, students learn about their rights, responsibilities, duties and freedoms and about laws, justice and democracy. They gain experience of taking part in decision-making and different forms of action and are able to play an active role in the life of the school, in their communities and in wider society as active and global citizens.

The Health curriculum is designed to reflect many of the concerns young people have as they progress through secondary school. For example in Year 7 students will study a unit the combats the many fears and anxieites they may experience through transition from Year 6 to Year 7 - from organising themselves to managing friendships and in Year 8  students will analyse their own mental and physical health by looking at their diet, their exercise habits and their ability to deal with stressful situations such as relationships.
