Being happy and healthy and growing into the best individuals we can be. We at The Aylesbury Vale Academy believe that students can reach their full potential if they are encouraged and given the opportunities to develop, socially and morally.

Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship education (PSHCE) helps to give the students the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. We encourage and push our students to be informed and active in making decisions necessary in being responsible citizens. They learn to respect and understand our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

With ever changing social environments, opportunities and challenges that lay ahead in our lives, we at The Aylesbury Vale Academy’s PSHCE department ensure that our students are informed and learn in safe environments where they are confident to discuss and debate their thoughts and views.

PSHCE is taught through the tutor programme. It is themed based which means it can change from year to year, however there is a core set of themes that are taught throughout the school:

  • Community
  • Bullying
  • Online safety
  • Positive relationships
  • Personal identity – in order to help students make the right choices for their GCSE’s.
  • Healthy Lifestyle
