PSHE

‘I have come that you might have life and have it to the full.’

(John.10.10)

We are the PHSE Ambassadors for 2023-2024. 

At St Antony’s we are committed to the education of the whole child. Pupils’ spiritual, physical, moral, social, cultural and emotional development is at the heart of our catholic school ethos. We intend to deliver a PSHE (including RSE) curriculum which is accessible to all and will maximise outcomes for every child, help them to grow in knowledge and understanding, recognise the value of all persons and develop caring and sensitive attitudes.

Through our curriculum we want our pupils to know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and develop a growing awareness of a broad range of safety issues.

We aim to raise pupils’ self-esteem and enable them to become independent, responsible, healthy and confident members of society.

Our teaching of PSHE is underpinned with our Christian faith understanding that our deepest identity is as a child of God – created, chosen and loved by God.  We aspire for all children to lead happy, successful lives. To prepare them for this, we explore a range of topics in PSHE to promote healthy lifestyles and relationships; mutual respect and social harmony; and an understanding of the right and responsibilities,  behaviours and attitudes that are necessary in order to play meaningful roles in society. 

 

In partnership with parents, we teach PSHE and RSE according to the National Curriculum and PHSE Association guidance with the Catholic faith and teachings at the heart. We are supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression outlined in the ‘Ten Ten Life To The Full Plus Scheme’. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year to maximise learning for all children. 

Although the discrete PHSE and RSE curriculum is timetabled, a significant proportion of PHSE provision takes place within the wider school and curriculum contexts, for example ,Science and RE lessons, Multi-Faith Weeks and enrichment projects enabling our children to develop their ability to tackle the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
