Our intention is that when children leave St Julie’s, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being.
Our PSHE curriculum develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which will enable children to access the wider curriculum and prepare them to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life.
As a Roman Catholic school, PSHE permeates throughout our daily practice. The “Come and See” religious education scheme allows for significant scope to address most aspects of PSHE, including relationships, sex and health education, which is taught using the “A Journey in Love” resource. In addition, links are made with other areas of the curriculum, such as science and physical education, in order to offer children a broad and balanced approach to PSHE education.
Information on PHSE Association: The PSHE Association is the national body for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education.

We work with members to raise standards in all schools and help ensure every pupil enjoys good PSHE education. Our members benefit from high quality teaching materials, training, conferences and support from our team of dedicated Subject Specialists. https://www.pshe-association.org.uk/
