At St Joseph's we recognise and respond to the needs of each and every child. We work hard to recognise their academic and emotional needs so as to develop the whole child as an individual. We aim to develop happy, fulfilled, well-educated and confident children in a caring, nurturing and fun environment.
The formation of the individual child is at the heart of our pastoral care and in line with the 2020 government update which makes Relationship & Sex Education (RSE) a statutory curriculum subject. We are excited to announce that we are partnering with a company called Ten:Ten to implement a scheme of work called 'Life to the full' which uses the Catholic education service model curriculum. This programme aims to support and deepen the spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of the child.
We aim to promote a school wide message of compassion and respect for all people through the teaching of PSHE/RSE and all other related subjects. In addition to using 'Life to the full', we will be supplementing the curriculum with other elements of PSHE using our 'no outsiders' scheme, theme days and P4C lessons.
Thank you to all those parents/carers who responded to our RSE Consultation Survey. We are updating and developing our scheme of work to include your input to ensure that our scheme is personal to the needs of our children.
