PSHE & RSE education at Marland Residential School acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people are experiencing, beginning with transition to a new school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It aims to teach the skills which will equip students for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students are encouraged to manage diverse relationships and the increasing influence of peers and the media. PSHE & RSE education allows them to be more confident in addressing the challenges of effective learning and making a full and active contribution to society. It reflects the fact that individuals are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking on greater responsibility for themselves and others.  All students follow a curriculum built on the 'Jigsaw' program as well as 'Sweet' which enables students to work towards both a level 1 & 2 BTEC qualification depending on ability and engagement.

  Delivery in School Day: 

PSHE & RSE is delivered in class by a specialist teacher, with one timetabled 50 min lesson per week and occasional tutor led sessions. These sessions serve to meet the needs of students as they transition from home to school life, and provide an opportunity for students to learn about the different themes and life-skills covered in the curriculum. 


Additional PSHE & RSE sessions delivered to year 11 students during transition period in Spring and Summer term during PL sessions, and throughout the year as required. 

PSHE is also embedded in the curriculum with subject teachers’ focusing on relevant areas. 


Delivery in Care Time: 

Drop in clinics provide an opportunity for students to learn more about a particular aspect of PSHE and RSE. These sessions can provide a more comfortable learning opportunity for students who may wish to find out more about a specific topic in a less formal setting. 

  Key worker supervision, a one-to-one session, provide an opportunity for a student to ask questions, find out more about a topic, or discuss an issue with someone they feel comfortable.
