Subject Intent:  

We aim to develop resilient, independent, loving and caring individuals who have a sound awareness of the key principles of relationships, respect, careers, health and safety to prepare them for future life.  

We wish to:  

– develop pupils’ cultural capital by giving pupils the information they require to gain a knowledge of the wider world through awe and wonder experiences.  

– create an understanding of a multicultural and diverse world in which we live.   

– promote acceptance, respect and celebrate our differences.   

– inspire awareness of local and wider communities to make positive changes to the world. 

– embed how to keep safe  

– foster British values and what it means to be British.  

– Expand understandings of careers to prepare and inspire pupils.  

– nurture positive relationships (including RSE).
