Skegness Academy

PSHE & RSHE

The PSHE curriculum equips learners to become lights within their world.  They are encouraged to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives.  Learners are encouraged to shine by being supported in making effective decisions, positive learning, career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing.  Learners are provided with opportunities to reflect on, clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and conflicting range of values and attitudes encountered now and in the future.  Learners will also develop inter and intra personal skills allowing them to develop team work and personal skills ensuring they shine and are not hidden.

Our intention is that, when students leave the Skegness Academy, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today's society.  We want our students to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and a confidence in sharing their own thought anything is possible if they put their minds to it.

Within the PSHE curriculum sits RSE.  Relationships and Sex Education at the Skegness Academy aims to support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development from childhood to adolescence and into adulthood.  We believe that Relationship and Sex Education is an essential part of a broad and balanced curriculum. 

It is delivered to all students in accordance with the Academy's Equal Opportunities Policy and is planned alongside the DFE statutory guidance on Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education which is taken from Section 80A of the Education Act 2002 and section 403 of the Education Act 1996. This guidance replaces the Sex and Relationship Education guidance (2000). This guidance will be reviewed three years from first required teaching (September 2020) and every three years after that point.
