Curriculum Intent

The PSHE Curriculum at Grace Academy Coventry seeks to provide a curriculum accessible by all and is shaped to the context of our Academy. The curriculum is structured to enhance our students’ personal growth, emotional wellbeing, appreciation of our British Values, as well as promoting Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.

The Curriculum teaches the skills needed to help students navigate opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life. It develops the students’ knowledge and understanding of health and wellbeing, relationships, living and contributing to the wider world. It equips students to become confident and resilient learners to take a positive, active role in a diverse society. It provides students with the skills needed to stay safe within the community, as well as a safe environment within the Academy where they’re able to discuss a range of topics while enhancing SMSC development and cultural capital.

Developing from Year 7-Year 13; our spiral curriculum is age appropriate yet challenging with topics being developed and built upon to increase powerful knowledge. An example of this is teaching our students the importance of healthy relationships which is taught throughout KS3-KS5 through PSHE lessons, tutor sessions, assemblies, and enrichment lessons.

Our PSHE spiral curriculum is embedded within Personal Development which is delivered throughout everyday life at the Academy and is underpinned by our Grace Values of Amazing Grace, Mutual Respect, Genuine Integrity, Limitless Potential, and Intentional Excellence.
