Personal, Social and Health Education
Welcome to our PSHE Curriculum page!
This school year we have been implementing the PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) Programme across our school called Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE.
Jigsaw brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Jigsaw provides weekly lessons that are tailored to meet all pupils needs that allow all pupils to enjoy building relationships with their peers and getting to know them better as unique human beings.
Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and pupils alike.
As a school, we look forward to working with parent/carers and the wider school community through coffee mornings and parent/carer workshops so we can continue to support each other in delivering a purposeful PSHE Curriculum to all of our pupils.
Please feel free to contact the school if you feel any workshops would be beneficial to yourselves in relation to PSHE or RSE.

Relationships, Health and Sex Education
RHE is taught in addition to the statutory science curriculum and provides both factual and age appropriate knowledge about conception and birth. It also covers the use of correct terminology when talking about private body parts. In preparation for the secondary RSE curriculum, pupils will be taught how to recognise the difference between intimate and non-intimate relationships, promoting healthy committed relationships, consent and the values and responsibilities required to build healthy adult relationships. It also teaches pupils to recognise their right to their own physical and emotional space, how to keep themselves safe and how to report any concerns or issues. Sex Education will not be part of the Primary Curriculum and all lessons as part of the Jigsaw Curriculum are age and developmentally appropriate for each pupil. Any questions that pupils may ask that is not covered within the unit will not be answered and pupils will be signposted to parents and carers so that parents and carers are then able to discuss what they feel comfortable disclosing with their own children.
