St John Bosco Arts College believes that a strong PSHCE education is important to help our pupils develop into well-rounded members of society, who are able to make a positive contribution to their community. At St John Bosco Arts College, our PSHCE curriculum is strongly tied to our relationship and sex education (RSE) and pastoral care programme. In our college we constantly work with the mission statement “to foster care, quality and equality for all” according to the ideals of St John Bosco.


Pupils will learn to:

  • Understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.
  • Understand safety issues, both in real life and online.
  • Develop responsibility and independence within school, which they will take forward into society in their working lives.
  • Respect other people, in particular, learning to respect the different cultural/ethnic/religious/gendered viewpoints of others in our school community and the wider world.
  • Understand what constitutes ‘socially acceptable’ behaviour at school and in society.
  • Be a constructive member of society.
  • Understand democracy.
  • Develop good relationships with peers and adults.
  • Develop self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.
  • Make positive, informed choices as they make their way through life.

Understand that they have a right to speak up about issues or events, and to respect others right to do the same.
