At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education is embedded within our
overarching curriculum that prepares our children for many different aspects of their lives.
Our overall goal is to help our children to become well-rounded individuals with strong character, who will eventually go out into the world of adults and be actively and positively involved in society. In order to do this, we are striving to create a conducive environment around the school and this year we have created our own specific Personal Development Curriculum that is entwined with our academic curriculum.
Our curriculum aims to provide engagement and enrichment and through this, we aim for all children to have equal opportunities to thrive together.

Shackleton Class Tower Wood Recounts
We had so much fun at Tower Wood that we wrote a recount in our English lesson - it was lovely to re-live our favourite memories and activities! Take a look at some of our beautiful (and very descriptive!) writing. Enjoy!
Aristotle Word Book Day 2018
We were very lucky that two groups of Year 6 children came to read to us on World Book Day. One group used puppets to retell the story of The Gingerbread Man, they even allowed us to ask them questions about their favourite stories afterwards. Another group lead us around the outdoor area retelling the tale of The Three Little Pigs and used our resources in a fantastic way to keep us entertained!
To celebrate World Book Day Einstein class were treated to a story reading by some of our Year 6 children. The children read an extract from The 13 - Storey Tree House by Andy Griffiths. The class were completely hooked and this will hopefully encourage them to read more stories from this much loved series. A huge well done and a thank you to William, Harry and Shay who read and performed beautifully.
