PSHE Curriculum Overview
PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic) education at St Thomas More Catholic Primary School is taught in line with the statutory guidance for PSHE education (2020) and the Development Matters (2021). We provide a high-quality PSHE programme which equips children with the knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life. The PSHE curriculum is driven by the three main strands as directed by the PSHE Association; health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is also taught alongside (National Curriculum, 2014), and will be led by the teachings of the Diocese and delivered through the ‘TenTen: Life to the Full’ scheme of work.
"The mental health of our children must be seen as every bit as important as their physical health." - Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
Better Schools Medway
In March 2023, we achieved the bronze award for 'Better Schools Medway'. In order to achieve the award, we made a variety of pledges in relation to PSHE and the wellbeing of staff and children and we can say with pride that our school is now a ‘Healthy Setting’.
