As a Catholic school, our core mission is to support each individual to become the best they can be and to live life to the full.

Our PSHE programme is at the heart of empowering students to set personal goals which drive progress and attainment. A bespoke programme has been developed for each year group to ensure individual needs are met and activities are appropriate to student stages of learning. This is delivered through PSHE, subject areas, assemblies, tutor time and key events.


St Joseph’s values as a Catholic school of inclusivity and Christ at the centre are reflected in the Religious studies curriculum which leads learning about values, ethical questions, relationships and diversity.


FLAME forms the core of our values and aspirations for pupils. This is woven into assemblies, PSHE lessons and the hidden curriculum. The PSHE curriculum reflects our local context. There is flexibility to respond to specific needs to highlight risks. For example, using assemblies and themed weeks to inform our students about neurodiversity.
