P.S.H.E and R.S.E
P.S.H.E & R.S.E
Lessons are taught weekly. Our curriculum is split into six these and these are taught across the school at the same. These themes are:
- Being me in my world
- Celebrating difference
- Dreams and goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
Our approach to P.S.H.E focuses on mindfulness and building resilience amongst our children. We aim to improve their capacity to learn, their resilience and emotional well-being and mental health and thereby enhance their life-chances.
Our curriculum is age - and stage - appropriate, and offer us the flexibility to deliver more sensitive issues in ways appropriate to their school ethos. RSE aspects of the curriculum are taught through 'Life to Full.'
At St Mary's RSE is taught through the Ten:Ten 'Life to the Full' programme.
As a Catholic school, our mission is to support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all of our pupils, rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Church. The education of children in human sexuality is an important, precious and privileged responsibility. The Church teaches us that this is very much a partnership with parents, in which parents are the ‘first educators’ of their children on these matters; ultimately, you confer on us the right to co-educate your children with you.
Through their programme, Ten Ten understand the foundational role that parents have in educating and nurturing their children on these matters. Within the programme, they have built in resources which will not only keep you informed about what is being taught in school, but will also give you the opportunity to engage your children in discussion, activity and prayer.
