The Enrichment Programme (PSHEE)

The Enrichment programme can be described as ‘learning to live life well.’ It deals with real life social and economic issues affecting children & young people, their families and communities. The Enrichment programme at Beacon Hill Academy will help develop the knowledge, understanding and skills young people need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

  • All Learners will be off timetable for a whole day each term.
  • Learners will be in year/tutor groups
  • Learners will take part in a rotation of workshop style sessions throughout the collapsed timetable day.

While PSHE education is a non-statutory subject, section 2.5 of the National Curriculum framework document states that:

‘All schools should make provision for PSHE, drawing on good practice.’

The Enrichment programme at Beacon Hill Academy is an important and necessary part of all Learners’ education and that builds, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and takes into account the statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

The Enrichment programme :

  • Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of Learners at the school within wider society.
  • Prepares Learners at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of ‘later life.’
  • Promotes Learners’ wellbeing and safeguarding (Children Act 2004) and community cohesion (Education Act 2006).
  • Reduces prejudice-based bullying and in doing so keeps protected characteristic groups safe (The Equality Act 2010).
