“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” - Harper Lee

Harper Lee (1926 - 2016) was an American novelist whose novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird' won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize and became a classic of modern American literature

PSHE at St Thomas'

(Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education including Sex and Relationships Education)

At St. Thomas’ we recognise the importance of nurturing the holistic development of every child. Our PSHE curriculum  helps to foster this; equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to thrive in an ever-changing world. Grounded in our school Christian values, our PSHE curriculum is designed to promote personal, physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. In addition, the curriculum aims to develop children’s awareness of their social responsibility to others and the world and foster emotional resilience, empowering students to make informed decisions, build positive relationships, and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.

 We are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment where students feel valued, respected, and listened to. Our PSHE curriculum encourages open and honest discussions, promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and fosters empathy and understanding towards others.

Through skilful delivery of carefully selected, well sequenced and age-appropriate programs, such as 1Decision and Kidsafe, we aim to empower our students to make informed decisions about their health and well-being, develop positive relationships, and understand their rights and responsibilities within society. Our curriculum addresses key topics such as personal safety, healthy lifestyles, relationships and sex education, mental health and emotional well-being, diversity and inclusion, and financial literacy.

We always look to enhance our curriculum with visits and visitors and a range of additional workshops and learning experiences enhance our offer and ensure that children are able to develop knowledge and skills within relatable, real-life experiences.

Children gain an understanding of personal finance management, employability and the world of work through NatWest MoneySense workshops and a range of visits from a variety of professionals and local employers. They explore the themes of sustainability, responsibility and British Values through visits to the Fairtrade conference at the Lancashire County Hall and a visit to Parliament in London. The Bikeability and Right Start (Pedestrian safety) programs enable children to assess risk and know how to keep themselves safe.  

By engaging with our PSHE curriculum, our students become confident, resilient, and responsible individuals who are equipped to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the modern world, and who contribute positively to their communities.

 "I feel like I understand different relationships in my life and I could recognise an unhealthy one."

" I learn how to keep myself safe, and who I can ask for help."

“PSHE lessons help me to talk about my feelings and understand other people around me.”
