RHSE Intent Statement

 RHSE is lifelong learning about stable, respectful and loving relationships, marriage and family life, physical health and mental wellbeing.

At St Joseph's, we believe in the education of the whole child (spiritual, physical, intellectual, moral, social, cultural, emotional) and we believe that RHSE is an integral part of this education.

Furthermore, through our programmes “Life to the Full”, (which has been approved for use by the Archdiocese of Southwark and draws on the guidance from the Department for Education), and “My Life”, we endeavour to raise pupils’ self-esteem, help them to grow in knowledge and understanding, recognise the value of all persons and develop caring and sensitive attitudes. It is in this context that we commit ourselves, in partnership with parents, to provide children and young people with a “positive and prudent sexual education” which is compatible with their physical, cognitive, psychological, and spiritual maturity, and rooted in a Catholic vision of education and the human person.

Our programme enshrines Catholic values relating to the importance of stable relationships, marriage and family life. It also promotes those virtues which are essential in responding to God’s call to love others with a proper respect for their dignity and the dignity of the human body.
