PSHE / RSHE

We teach Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) weekly in all classes and it is primarily taught through PSHE lessons, Religious Education, Collective Worship, Science and PE but we recognise that every area of school life can contribute to RSHE as our school, in its very ethos, mission and nature, operates through positive, human relationships.

All that we do adheres to the teaching of the Catholic Church, directives of the Catholic Education Service (CES), and aligns to the DfE statutory requirements (September 2020).

  In Foundation 2, we teach PSED as part of the EYFS Curriculum. 

The core themes and topics which Years 1-6 cover in PSHE are: 

Core Theme 1: Created and Loved by God; Health and Wellbeing

  • Physical health and Mental wellbeing
  • Growing and changing
  • Keeping safe

Core Theme 2: Created to Love Others; Relationships

  • Families and friendships
  • Safe relationships
  • Respecting ourselves and others

Core Theme 3: Created to Live in Community; Living in the Wider World

  • Belonging to a community
  • Media literacy and digital resilience
  • Money and work
