PSHRE Curriculum Intent

Our intention is to equip all of our children at St John’s with the essential skills they will need for life. We aim to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to protect and enhance their well-being. Through these lessons, children will learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in a diverse society around them, both now and in the future.


The units in our PSHRE curriculum cover a wide range of social and emotional aspects of learning, enabling children to develop their identity and self-esteem as active, confident citizens. The themes and topics aim to support social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide children with protective teaching on essential safeguarding issues, developing the knowledge of when and how children can ask for help.


We intend for children to be taught in a safe environment, in which they can express their feelings and explore sensitive issues. They will develop skills to empathise with others but also develop their own identity, values and beliefs.
