Key Stage 4

During Year 10 and 11, students capitalise on the spiral curriculum taught in previous years. Students draw on their knowledge of the potential dangers challenging a healthy life (drugs and alcohol usage, sexually transmitted infections, smoking, diet, etc) financial awareness, crime and punishment, social issues, family differences, conforming to peer pressure and life saving skills.

Year 10 students then study a programme of “minimising the risk” of a teenager’s lifestyle. By raising awareness of potential situations and discussing the consequences, students reinforce positive attitudes and role play scenarios designed to rehearse healthy lifestyle decisions.

Topics covered at Year 10 include:

  • Option choices of life & limiting the risk
  • Why people have sex / SRE
  • STIs & safe(r) sex
  • homophobia
  • Grooming, CSE & risk management

And Year 11 includes;

  • Domestic abuse / CSE
  • Binge drinking
  • Pornography & sexting
  • Drugs awareness & perception
  • Moving out, motoring & debt
  • Really? workshops

There are no formal exams as such; however, lesson content will be assessed in line with the school assessment for learning  policy.
