Holy Family believes that our pupils should be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Our aim is to guide our children to make a positive contribution to their community. Our PSHE curriculum is strongly tied to our RSE, relationships and health education.

The vision for pupils, staff and others linked to our school is to always look to achieve our personal best in every aspect of school life. Recently, we have subscribed to My Happy Minds as part of our PSHE Curriculum which aims to,

"prepare today's children for tomorrow's world by building resilient, balanced and happy minds at home and at school."

As well as weekly lessons, we incorporate dedicated PSHE weeks to develop skills, broaden knowledge and celebrate our talents through creativity. For example: British Values, Black History, Kindness days and many more! 

Our aim is to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk – management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. 

Our school environment is safe with everyone sharing responsibility for it.

Everyone at Holy Family is encouraged and supported to achieve their personal best. Our school is welcoming, inclusive and is a place where everyone is valued.

Our pupils and staff treat each other fairly, with kindness and with mutual respect. We focus on Jesus being the centre of our words and actions through scripture throughout each day.

The needs and interests of all pupils, irrespective of gender, culture, ability or talent, will be promoted through an inclusive and varied PSHE curriculum at our school.

In PSHE, we are learning about teeth. You have to clean twice a day. Don’t rinse your mouth after!” Alfie and Ollie Year 5.
