PSHE (PERSONAL, SOCIAL, HEALTH & ECONOMIC education)

At St Joseph’s, we understand the importance of preparing our young people for life and work in modern Britain, and do this through the fortnightly delivery of PSHE. PSHE is delivered by tutors in their form room, as successive evaluations have shown this is how the pupils feel they learn best. 

Within PSHE, each year group covers specific modules, designed to ensure coverage of Healthy Lifestyles; Living in Our Wider World which includes Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance; and British Values. Many aspects complement learning that takes place in RSHE lessons within RE.
