Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic (PSHCE) Education focusses on helping children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. Its goal is to equip young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly.

At St. Monica’s the PSHE Curriculum is taught alongside the Relationships and Sex Education curriculum in which children learn about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up and having relationships in an age appropriate way. We use an adapted version of the Croyden RSE scheme of work, tightly linked to the recommendations of the Catholic Education Society.

Our schemes and plans can be found at the bottom of the page. The first table shows the titles of the topics we teach over the year in each of the classes.
