PSHE, Religious Education and Citizenship
Pupils are taught PSHE, Citizenship and RE in dedicated lessons with specialist teachers. Pupils have dedicated lessons as well as covering additional topics in form time, assemblies and in drop-down days. Our commitment to developing pupils who are equipped to be active citizens, and who can live in a culturally diverse community is a strength of our academy, and is enhanced by being a Co-op Academy.
What does our curriculum include?
The curriculum is taught from Year 7, with pupils being able to opt to take RS and Citizenship at GCSE. Topics studied enhance our pupils’ knowledge and understanding and help them to develop a greater awareness of the world around them and the communities in which they live.
PSHE lessons enable pupils to understand how they look after themselves and how they develop their own character and personality. Additional talks are arranged on a range of different themes and each week the academy ahs a quote of the week which is focused around a national day, or a relevant theme. We put a great deal of emphasis on ensuring that our pupils are confident in these key areas of life. ‘The North Manchester Way’ is delivered in Year 7 to introduce our pupils to the Co-op ‘Ways of being’ and how we can build these into our daily life.
