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.
