VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

RE and PSHCE

Curriculum aim

In Hope schools, high quality RE is provided for all pupils, which is inclusive and broad minded. RE in our City of York and North Yorkshire schools is taught in accordance with the local Agreed Syllabus for York and North Yorkshire. Manor Church of England Academy follows the Diocese of York RE syllabus.

Parents do have the right to withdraw pupils from RE lessons, or any part of the RE curriculum: if you wish to do this, please make an appointment with the RE subject leader in school. Hope does not support selective withdrawal from RE. Our schools have a duty to supervise pupils withdrawn from RE, though not to provide additional teaching or to incur extra cost. Where the pupil has been withdrawn, alternative arrangements will be made for RE of the kind the parents/guardians want the pupil to receive. These arrangements will be made by the parents/guardians;- the school is not expected to make these arrangements. This RE could be provided at the school in question, or by another school in the locality. If neither approach is practicable, the pupil may receive external RE teaching as long as the withdrawal does not significantly impact on the child’s attendance.

Religious Education (RE) and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) offers students the opportunity to learn about world religions, ethics and politics of the UK and around the world and personal, social and mental health. Students will be given the skills to develop into good citizens. There will be a focus on managing money, the importance of work and aspirations.

Programme for 2019/20

Key stage 3 curriculum overview

Across KS3 students will learn about the six major world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism and Sikhism. Students will engage in a robust careers programme that aims to raise aspirations and encourage students to aim higher to achieve their goals – and come to the realisation that nothing can be out of their reach if they work for it. Students will complete a varied course of PSHCE topics from puberty to drug and alcohol awareness. Students will also complete a series of topics that help them to understand democracy and government around the world. This includes a model United Nations project and a Mock General Election.

Key stage 4 curriculum overview

In Year 10 students will engage with work experience to develop their employability and key skills; have crucial experience of life in working world, and gain all-important references from employers to take forward into further education, training and the workplace.

In Year 11 there is a strong focus on independent advice and guidance. Some Year 11 students will access one-to-one independent careers advice and guidance through external agencies. They will also work on essential skills, such as CV writing, completing college applications and learning about personal finance and general financial well-being to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge as they take their next steps in their educational journey.
