Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE)

At Our Lady and St John PSHE education helps our children to stay safe, healthy and prepared for life's challenges and opportunities.

PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) education is a school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

PSHE education helps pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepared for life and work in modern Britain.  PSHE also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential.

Research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. PSHE education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes — like teamwork, communication, and resilience — that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world, and are increasingly valued by employers.
