Year nine

Year nine return to complete their final year of key stage three, a year in which they will be challenged and supported to make their option choices for GSCE. We have high expectation of this year group and know they will continue to work hard with commitment and dedication. The experienced tutor team will ensure that they receive the information, advice and guidance to make informed choices which will help them pursue their ambitions.

On a Wednesday pupils should line up for assembly in the main school quad where they will be registered by their form tutor. Assembly is led by the year leader, with presentations from the senior leadership team, faculty leaders and outside visitors.

PSHCE

Personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE) is delivered by form tutor during period four on Wednesday. The programme of study is carefully designed to support pupils' developmental needs and the issues they will face.

The PSHCE Programme for year nine will include:

  • Relationships
  • Sexual health
  • Body image
  • Alcohol and drugs education
  • The environment
  • Government and politics

This programme is also supported through three discovery days.

Pupil voice

Pupil voice is very important at Chilwell School. It is an opportunity for pupils to give their views and opinions regarding school life. In recent years feedback from pupil voice has helped design our new school uniform, change the menu in the canteen and expand the offer in activities week.

Each tutor group in year nine will elect two representatives who will attend year council meeting with the year leader. These pupils will be responsible for expressing the views of the pupils in their tutor group and giving feedback following the meeting.
