St Matthew’s PSHE curriculum offers a ‘broad and balanced curriculum that promotes good behaviour, safety and nurtures our young pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development. 

We plan and encourage our pupils voice to develop a planned programme of learning through which our pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School is committed in its approach to develop the qualities and attributes that our young pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of our society.  We encourage our pupils to contribute to a bespoke  curriculum that  addresses  their direct experiences and their preparation for their future.

Anti Bullying Week At St Matthew's Catholic Primary School 2016
This week St Matthew's celebrated National Anti-Bullying Week.  The theme for this year was 'Power for Good'. The children worked on many projects throughout the week.  

Foundation Stage: Children learned to feel good about themselves and to respect others.                               KS1 (years 1 and 2) children explored how it would  feel to be bullied.                                  

KS2 (years 3 and 4) Children looked at what they could do if they saw bullying.                                                        (years 5 and 6) Children researched why people bully and what to do if it happens to them.

All classes made posters

All classes made a 'supporting hands' poster naming 5 people they could tell if they ever encountered bullying.

The 'Show and Tell' assembly was a celebration of achievement.  The children were united as they sang and danced in their defiance of bullying.
