Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education (PSHCEE) Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
PSHCEE is taught at The Marlborough Science Academy through discrete lessons at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
PSHCEE aims to equip students with the knowledge and resilience needed to enable them to overcome any problems they may face in school or later on in life. We endeavour to prepare students with the skills needed for the 21st Century, to learn things for themselves and know how to manage aspects including managing change, financial matters, developing positive relationships and understanding the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
Throughout the course students take part in school and community based activities, demonstrating personal and group responsibility in their attitudes to themselves and others. Regular visits from guest speakers and theatre groups enrich their learning experience, ensuring a fresh and dynamic approach towards PSHCEE and RSE.
Our goal is for all students to be fully prepared for any of lifes’ challenges.
We are fully compliant with the 2020 Statutory Duty to provide Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE).
Marlborough is fully compliant with the new statutory requirements for RSE and students will take part in a full programme of health, relationship and sex education. If parents do not wish their child to participate in the sex education programme they are able to withdraw them from this. Please be aware that you cannot withdraw your child from the relationship or health education areas of the curriculum or aspects of sex education taught from the science curriculum. Please make any requests in writing to Mrs N Golds, PSHCEE/RSE Coordinator.
