At Stanton Vale we have a robust PSHE curriculum that is delivered in both cross-curricular and discrete sessions. Each Pathway and Avenue has their own bespoke PSHE offer that is tailored to the age and stage of the pupils. Objectives are derived from The PSHE Association SEN Adapted Framework. 

Relationship and Sex Education is delivered in line with statutory requirements. It is delivered through the Changing and Growing and Managing Feelings areas of the Stanton Vale and PSHE Association SEN Framework. Parents right to withdraw their children from RSE lessons is explained through the policy.  Relationship Education and Health Education is taught in line with our student’s cognitive and developmental ability. Sex Education discrete sessions for Nurture and Aspire classes begins from Year 7 with non-statutory topics being covered in the Avenues from Year 9.

The type of PSHE and RSE you would expect to see in each pathway is explained below:
