Personal Development Curriculum
The Personal Development Curriculum is underpinned by Kingsbury High School's commitment to uphold the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Curriculum helps students to develop their personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) understanding and is, therefore, designed to enable learners to become respectful, knowledgeable individuals who can play a full part in modern Britain and the wider world.
Students have PSHE lessons every fortnight. There is also an Excel Day (where the normal timetable is collapsed) every term to enable deeper learning.
PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION (PSHE) - POST 16
The PSHE national program of study is divided into three areas:
· Health and Wellbeing
· Living in the Wider World
We also address cultural capital to be successful throughout the sixth form journey and study skills.
We also address Relationships, Sex and Health Education.
Right to Withdraw at post 16 –At this age, students can choose to receive Sex Education if they would like to, and the school will arrange for students to receive this teaching in one of those three terms (unless there are exceptional circumstances).
