Department Ethos

PDLC education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

PDLC helps equip young people to deal with situations of conflict and controversy knowledgeably and tolerantly. It helps by educating pupils on how to understand the consequences of their actions, and those of the adults around them as well as teaching them about how the UK is run and how they can contribute to our communities helping them become better citizens.

The Key Stage 3 and Key stage 4 curriculum has been designed to embrace the National Curriculum for PSHE and Citizenship. The PSHE Association has identified 3 strands for PSHE; Relationships, living in the Wider World and Healthy Living and together with Citizenship, these 4 strands create our curriculum which is delivered to our pupils by their tutors twice a week.

Pupils also have 4 Enrichment days throughout the academic year in which all pupils in the school drop off of their timetable and learn about PDLC (Personal Development Learning and Citizenship). These sessions are delivered by the tutors and where possible, more specialist visitors to enhance our pupils learning experience.
