PSHE education is an important school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. 

At St Josephs Catholic Primary School we believe that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We aim to provide an inspiring education providing opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, alongside learning about and respecting others. Creative and imaginative opportunities are provided that inform their perspective on life and create a sense of enjoyment in learning about themselves.

Children at St Josephs Catholic Primary School understand and appreciate life in modern Britain today and cultural opportunities are provided to improve understanding and to show respect for different faiths, genders, disabilities and cultures. 

As well as the regular inclusion of PSHE within the timetable, special days have been set aside to promote mental health and global issues. Across the year we are celebrating; World Mental Health Week, Emotional Literacy, World Water Day, World Refugee Day and Anti-Bullying Week. Alongside this, KS2 classes are each presenting assembly to the rest of the school on key topics including; Anti-Bullying, gender equality, religious diversity and cultural diversity.

Emotional Literacy
On Thursday 10th October 2019, St Joseph’s celebrated World Mental Health Day by taking part in a whole school Emotional Literacy Day. The whole school wore yellow and Years 2-6 took part in a lesson streamed live from the BBC promoting mental health and well being. Other activities included making worry monsters, creating logos for the ‘Well being for Wallasey’ project and practising recognising the emotions of ourselves and others.
At St Joseph’s we are committed to promoting the well being of everyone in our school and Emotional Literacy is something we will continue to work on throughout the year
