PSHE and Citizenship

PSHE and Citizenship at The Belvedere Academy aims to make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life. It aims to help students develop in the following key areas:

We will:

  • Help students to aspire to be the best they can be, to have dreams for their future and know what is required to reach them.

  • Provide opportunities for our students to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a valuable member of an ever-changing diverse society.

  • Help students to understand and consider many of the moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up in modern Britain.

  • Deepen our students’ understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance.

  • Develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

  • Stimulate, challenge and nurture student’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural curiosity.

  • Help students to understand the importance of their physical and mental health, understand emotions and feelings and have strategies to help them become resilient and confident.

  • Provide young people the knowledge they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds.
