PSHE Education

Our PSHE (personal, social, health and economic education) and assemblies programmes emphasise the academy’s ethos of Belong, Believe and Become.

This page gives an overview of some of the different topics covered by these programmes. Download a full week-by-week timetable of topics covered in PSHE education. View and download our assembly presentations.


Through the programme, students have the chance develop an understanding of employability skills so that they are well prepared for the next stage of their education, employment, self-employment or training. Professionals from various professions support the assembly programme for this strand, which also ties in closely with our careers programme.


We also look at the topic of safeguarding in the context of the home, peer group, school, and neighbourhood. Students develop an understanding of how to keep themselves safe from relevant risks such as domestic abuse, sexual exploitation, FGM, forced marriages, knives and gang activity, and also from radicalisation and extremism, including when using the internet and social media. This strand of the PHSE and assemblies programme is supported by external speakers including the Metropolitan Police, knife crime prevention charities and the London Ambulance Service.


Students also learn about relationships (including sexual relationships). They learn how to keep themselves safe, including how to get support for themselves or others. Students study aspects of addiction too, and its impact on individuals, family and community. This strand of the PHSE and assembly programme is supported by external speakers including Wise Up and Daniel Spargo Mabbs Foundation, an award winning charity for education in drugs awareness.


We also cover how to keep healthy, both emotionally and physically, including through exercising, healthy eating and mental health awareness. This strand is supported by NHS and other relevant agencies.


Our PSHE and assemblies prgrammes also help students preparing positively for life in modern Britain. Our programme promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. This is supported by number of ‘heritage’ and ‘cultural days’ in the Academy.


In addition, the academy works with a number of agencies to support the PHSE programme and has delivered ‘drop down’ days and afternoon workshops and separate assemblies.  These include Hussein House, Kooth Counselling, Havering Mind, Barclays Banks and Rah Rah Theatre Company.
