Welcome to Life

Welcome to the Outwood Academy Valley Life department. In this department, we strive to accomplish an outstanding PSHE education for all students as outlined in the Department for Education guidance.

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. PSHE is a non-statutory subject. We believe that it is for schools to tailor their local PSHE programme to reflect the needs of their pupils. We expect schools to use their PSHE education programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
