PSHE Key Stage 3

Students are taught for one 45-minute lesson per week and follow the New Horizons ASDAN scheme. New Horizons is an activity-based curriculum resource which supports the delivery of PSHE Education. The New Horizons Record Book contains activities within a framework of five modules:Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Relationships. The programme is learner-centred, offering structure and flexibility; it provides recognition for small steps in achievement. In each module there is a focused careers-related activity. Working with their tutor, the student completes a Personal Skills section for each module they do, which will help them identify specific things they are good at, relating to the module theme. The final activity in each module is My Challenge. This requires the learner, working with the tutor, to identify something new they would like to try, relating to the theme of the module. For the first few weeks of the Autumn term, students will cover personal safety and e-safety.

The activities also offer an opportunity to develop personal, social, communication and numeracy skills in a life skills setting. The students will be covering various modules and will receive a certificate on completion of each module. Modules include:

  • Personal
  • Social
  • Health
  • Citizenship
  • Relationships
