At Shuttleworth College we aim to provide the skills and knowledge to enable each student to become healthy, independent, curious and responsible members of society.

Our PSHE curriculum allows students to understand how they are developing throughout their secondary school years personally and socially and tackle many moral, social and cultural issues that are part of their adolescent lives. Not only can we prepare them for issues that they will face in their adolescent lives, but our aim is to prepare them for life after school. At Shuttleworth College we understand the importance and fortune of living in a multi‐cultural society, therefore we provide our students with the opportunities to learn about different cultures to help them become a member of such a diverse society. By promoting opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities both within school and outside of school, students begin to develop the ability to self‐reflect and develop their own skills and are encouraged to develop their sense of self‐worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and within the wider community.

PSHE will be taught to Key Stage Three through the Humanities faculty, with 1 hour a fortnight dedicated timetable time to PSHE. At Shuttleworth College we also have our ‘Bloom’ programme of study which is delivered an hour a week by form tutors in registration groups in Key Stage Three. Our Bloom curriculum complements our PSHE curriculum as it allows students to engage with regular CEIAG content which has been created in conjunction with Fran Ackroyd, our Careers Leader, opportunities to discuss current affairs, British Values and wider social, political and religious issues. At Key Stage Four, they are completing a programme of study known as ‘Worldview Studies’ which is also delivered an hour a week by form tutors in registration groups. In these sessions, the students will learn statutory PSHE content, SRE content, Bloom and Core RE elements.

“PSHE is about making sure children and young people have the skills they need to grow up as healthy individuals who can make informed decisions about their lives.”

Anne Longfield, Children's Commissioner

“I like PSHE because we learn things that we don't normally learn in other lessons. It is helpful because we know more about what to do when we are in important situations. It gives us life skills that we would not learn about anywhere else. It is useful because it helps us to avoid things like cancer and other illnesses that come from an unhealthy lifestyle.”
