A specialist SEN school for secondary aged boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs

The Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum at LWS is delivered through two lessons per week, taught in tutor groups. Students, parents and carers have been consulted on our new PSHE curriculum, which addresses new statutory guidance on Relationship & Sex Education and Health Education.
Topics are separated into three main groups: health and wellbeing, safe relationships and the wider world, but all lessons across the school will enhance students understanding of Fundamental British Values. We strive for to establish an open dialogue with students in order to break down barriers and stigma associated with certain topics.
A breakdown of the topics per half term is shown below.
