PSHE, RSE & Character Development Map

Our aim at Thomas Knyvett College is to ‘Bring out the Best’ in all our students through academic excellence as well as thorough a personal development programme.  Our 5Cs, PSHE and RSE programme helps provide children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, and independent lives.  Our 5C values include Community, Culture, Currency, Character, and Contentment.  The programme allows students to deal with critical issues they face every day such as relationships, wellbeing and keeping safe.  At Thomas Knyvett College students engage in a range of activities using an adaptive and relevant curriculum that builds upon the statutory content of PSHE, with a bespoke programme that reflects the needs of our students.  Throughout their time at Thomas Knyvett College students take part in off timetable sessions to engage with specialist guest speakers, who share real life experiences and a scenario-based approach to face a world full of uncertainty with hope.  The staff at Thomas Knyvett College strive to create open and honest relationships and conversations, where students feel comfortable to disclose information and seek support.

The programme allows students to explore the various relationships they form and contributions which they make to society.  The programme offers the following content.

 The following curriculum illustrates the different elements of the 5Cs/PSHE curriculum in more detail:
