“No man is an island, entire of itself. Our lives are involved with one another, through innumerable interactions they are linked together. No one lives alone. No one sins alone. No one is saved alone. The lives of others continually spill over into mine: in what I think, say, do and achieve. And conversely, my life spills over into that of others: for better and for worse.”
Pope Benedict XVI
At St Thomas More, PSCHE education is a planned, developmental programme through which our young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.
It helps to safeguard students, support their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
PSHE is taught one lesson per week in tutor groups by the form tutors. Each Year Group follows a set programme of study, which includes three core themes at Key Stage 3 & 4:
· Health and Wellbeing (H & W)
· Relationships (R)
· Living in the Wider World (LWW)
The PSHE education programme is taught within safe and supportive learning environments, where established ground rules allow young people to develop the confidence to ask questions, challenge the information they are offered, contribute their own experience, reflect on opinions, and put what they have learned into practice in their own lives.
