What is PSHE?

PSHE (personal, social, health and economic education) takes place every fortnight at Cardinal Newman and provides our students with the opportunity to learn and develop the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
Our mission at Cardinal Newman is based on the Gospel values to ‘have life and have it to the full’ (John 10:10), and our PSHE curriculum is designed to be able to help pupils to achieve this. Our PSHE curriculum covers three main areas: Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), Health and Wellbeing and, Careers and Enterprise. The curriculum content focuses on ways to help pupils stay healthy, safe, and prepared for life- and work- in modern Britain, providing them with a firm foundation to be able to live their life to the full.
