PSHE is taught weekly using the Barnet emotional wellbeing framework. This is based on the PSHE Association’s PSHE Education Programme of Study with emotional health and wellbeing woven within it. Children have the opportunity to participate in discussion, reflecting and circle time as a vehicle to explore relevant themes including relationships (social and emotional), Health and well-being, Economic wellbeing & being a responsible citizen. We use Journey in Love to support our teaching of Sex and relationship Education (SRE) with a Catholic perspective.
