PSHCE

The aims for PSHCE at Burlington Danes Academy from the point of view of the National Agenda are to enable pupils to become:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

Within this department we teach 100% of the students at Burlington Danes Academy from Year 7 through to Year 11.
