Our curriculum aims to support student’s holistic development by providing skills to develop confidence, resilience, and self-esteem. The school ethos, Love of God, Love of Neighbour is central to the PSHE curriculum. We provide our students with opportunities to recognise themselves as valued individuals, to celebrate differences and understand the need for empathy and compassion for others.
We aim to equip all our students with the essential skills for future employability and facilitate progress in all areas of life encouraging students to strive to be the best version of themselves using their God given talents for the greater good.
PSHE is embedded in school life with PSHE themes being delivered through different curriculum areas, themes of the week, assemblies and curriculum drop down periods. The curriculum is organised into three units each unit provides students with the opportunity to explore the Gospel values. Unit one is centred around healthy relationships and sex education, which give student the students to explore understanding, compassion, and empathy towards one another. Unit two allows students to develop life skills, such financial capabilities. Unit three focuses on citizenship, which allows students to explore citizenship and respect individuality our diverse society.
