Our mission as a Catholic School is to provide the highest possible quality of education for all our students, delivered within the context of Gospel values and the teachings of the Church, within our Christian community.
PSHE education is a school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. PSHE education has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
At key stage 3, Our PSHE curriculum acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the knowledge and skills which equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Pupils learn to manage diverse relationships, their online lives and the increasing influence of peers and the media.
At key stage 4, Pupils deepen knowledge and understanding, extend and rehearse skills, and further explore attitudes, values and attributes acquired during key stage 3. Our PSHE curriculum reflects the fact that Pupils are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking greater responsibility for themselves and others.
At La Retraite we have weekly PSHE lessons which includes a broad curriculum with lessons including: sex and relationship education, drug education, mental health education, learning about the safe use of social media, the problem of knife crime, gang prevention education and citizenship education, together with practical life skills including first aid, money management and healthy lifestyles.
