Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

The PSHE curriculum is taught through weekly tutor-led lessons (30 minutes per day), assemblies and curriculum enrichment days. Through the PSHE curriculum we equip pupils with the knowledge and understanding they need to be happy and healthy and live a fulfilling life. They will enjoy healthy, positive relationships with friends, family and members of the community, and support in changing our world for the better. They are able to evaluate risk and make informed choices about how they navigate through the challenges and opportunities life presents. We promote respect and tolerance of the diverse world around them, by introducing pupils to a wide range of concepts and having them exposed to a variety of experiences. 

Our intention is to support our pupils to be the best version of themselves so they can play a decisive role in changing our world for the better. The core intent of the PSHE curriculum is to give every student at Ossett Academy, the guidance, skills and powerful knowledge they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships. Alongside developing the skills necessary to form and maintain positive relationships we are driven to ensure that all of our pupils, regardless of their background, can have confidence and see the value in themselves so they are inspired to achieve their full potential. 

Our PSHE curriculum draws on the support from learned communities and key agencies such as the Department for Education (KCSIE), NSPCC, NHS, Police, National Crime Agency (NCA), Mind, YoungMinds, Stonewall, RiseAbove, Child Exploitation Online Programme (CEOP), NATRE, the Red Cross and the PSHE Association.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
