At Swindon Academy, we are passionate about providing our students with a well-rounded curriculum that allows students to nurture and take ownership of their own personal development. Children and young people today are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to learn how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.
Some aspects of our PSHE/RSHE/SMSC programme of study incorporate challenging topics, and we make no apologies in ensuring these are delivered to all our students in a safe learning environment. This is so students can ask questions, learn about common misconceptions and prejudices, and be able to make their own informed decisions and choices, after being presented with the full facts. This is essential for our young people to form their opinions and develop their own characters as they continue their journey at Swindon Academy.
