Curriculum: PD Key Stage 4

In Key Stage 4 we combine RE with PD in our Religion, Ethics and Personal Development course.

In Year 10 students spend time making ready and planning for work experience. RSE focusses on the consequences of having a baby when you are not ready, contraception, abortion and the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships; domestic violence, rape and sexual harassment. Students also learn about euthanasia.

Much of Year 11 is dedicated to supporting the post 16 process, preparing students for interviews and creating a CV. We explore the various routes available to students post 16 and post 18. We also revisit substance misuse, smoking, dangers on a night out/at a house party, the dangers of posting images online and pornography addiction.  Students receive financial advice on mortgages, income tax, managing and living healthily a budget, saving and the costs of having a phone/car. Students revise their emergency first aid training.

A curriculum overview calendar for Years 7-11 Personal Development is available here
