Personal Development PHSRE Programme

Within Personal Development lessons  PHSRE - Personal, Health, Social and Relationship Education  explores personal issues, relationships, and aspirations. In addition, students cover key issues facing them and the lessons at The Crypt School stress the importance of discussing values about topics such as physical and mental wellbeing, consent, relationships and sexual orientation.

 An equally important focus for our students is their academic life: how to use study skills and revision skills productively – whilst understanding how to deal with the pressures these can bring.  The Crypt School also focuses on the students’ pathways towards the working world; and this enables every student to reflect on potential careers, the skills required and the routes towards achieving their goals.  Content ranges from opening the discussion about what ‘careers’ are in Year 7 to the application for degrees and apprenticeships at sixth form level.

The Personal Development lessons also examines our students’ positions as citizens in a societal context, including the local, national, and global community.  Our aim is to allow students to feel safe when asking difficult questions and to feel informed when considering their viewpoints.
