Personal, Social and Health Education
Through PSHE we promote children's understanding of themselves on a physical and emotional level. All children learn how to stay healthy and keep safe. Children are also taught to respect the differences between people. At St Pius we use the SEAL programme to support our teaching of PSHE.
There is also a programme delivered in accordance with advice for Catholic Schools on relationships and sex education. Much of the programme is taught through the science and PSHE curriculum. In year 6 pupils are given the opportunity to discuss growth and puberty. Parents/carers are advised prior to the sessions and have a right to withdraw their child if they wish.
