What makes a good PSHE pupil at Holy Cross?
A passion for dialogue and an openness to listen to new ideas and concepts. A willingness to share thoughts and to learn from others, with an ability to emphasise. An openness and honesty within themselves and with others. An ability to consider society and what’s best for the whole, rather than the self.
Our PSHE Curriculum
At Holy Cross we pride ourselves on valuing all children whatever their ability or age. We believe this is supported by Personal, Social, Health education. These subjects enhance self-esteem, self-discipline, positive relationships and are an important part of our pupils' education.
Evidence shows that effective and well delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils. Our whole school celebration assemblies are a special way we celebrate success. At Holy Cross we feel that our ethos, values and curriculum gives our children a clear indication of what's right and wrong; whilst feeling safe and aims to enhance a healthy lifestyle in all our children.
At Holy Cross we use the PSHE Association: Question Based programme of study to equip our pupils with a sound understanding of risk and the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
