PSHE and RSE and RE at BMA
Regular year group, key stage drop-down days and whole school assemblies are used to address significant topical issues and place prominence on our school values. This is further embedded through our tutor programme. Religious Education (RE) is covered as a discrete subject at Key Stage 3 and as part of the broader PSHE and assembly programme for Key Stage 4 and 5. Religious Education remains an optional GCSE and A-level subject for all students in Key Stage 4 and 5 and this ensures all pupils continue to receive a broad curriculum in these areas. Relationships, Sex and Health (RSE) education is also covered within tutor time and drop-down days across the academic year. This curriculum covers all recommended content for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).
If you have further questions for enquiries regarding the KS3 or KS4 curriculum, please contact Mr Riley using the BMA contact us email.
Our approach to the curriculum complies with our equality objectives and pays due regard to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. We work to the best of our ability to ensure that all barriers are lifted for all students, so that they can achieve their potential and access to the curriculum. We encourage all to not only take a full and active part in lessons but also ensure all students have equal opportunity to participate in our enrichment opportunities.
