Welcome to PSHE


Since it was founded in 1961, St Christopher’s has always believed in giving pupils a full rounded education, feeling passionately that education is about development of the whole human being. At St Christopher’s we understand just how important it is for our children to manage and understand their feelings, work co-operatively in groups, motivate themselves and demonstrate resilience in the face of setbacks. Our PSHE programme aims to develop all our children as effective learners and citizens.

At St Christopher’s we tailor our PSHE programme to reflect the needs of our pupils and the St Christopher’s core values and ethos. Our PSHE education programme provides pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

At St Christopher’s, the Quality Circle Time model is used to promote social skills and positive relationships. Positive behaviour is encouraged in a caring and respectful ethos. Pupils develop their self-esteem and self-confidence through a varied PSHE curriculum which encompasses key elements of the St Christopher’s School ethos; The Autonomous Learner, Competent Individual and Global Citizen.

Community Service Projects link closely with the PSHE curriculum.
