'Come and See'
We follow the ‘Come and See’ Catholic Primary Religious Education Programme. This is a special programme which allows the children to learn about the Catholic faith and to know Jesus more. Throughout the year, we also explore other faiths.
It is an extensive programme which covers a range of challenging themes from EYFS up to Year 6. Each theme comprises the following sections:
At the end of each theme, the children reflect on what they have learnt through class liturgies.

A Journey in Love
Journey In Love is the RSE scheme (Relationships & Sex Education) that we use at St Thomas More. It is the recommended programme of study for Catholic schools for Sex and Relationship Education and has been written so that year on year the children build on their knowledge and awareness. It also supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curriculum taught within the school.
As with all aspects of learning, children are naturally curious, and many will have questions related to their lessons. Opportunities to discuss questions form part of the lessons and again these are treated with care and understanding. A Journey In Love highlights the importance of parental input and children will be told to discuss their lessons at home. As a parent, you have the right to withdraw your child from Sex Education at any time if you wish to do so.
