PHSE including SRE


Curriculum Intent

Our PSHE curriculum is broad, balanced and taught explicitly in PSHE lessons as well as permeating the whole curriculum, school life and underpinning our Christian values. Through following The Jigsaw scheme we ultimately want to help our children understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health,  we will deliver engaging and relevant PSHE. 

Though quality teaching we want to ensure our children:

  • Develop the qualities and attributes needed to thrive as individuals, family members, members of society  and the global community
  • Practice mindfulness allowing then to advance their awareness, concentration and focus
  • Understand what it means to be a British citizen and  to have ‘British’ values
  • Understand how to manage money responsibly
  • Know how to keep their body and mind healthy
  • Know how to keep themselves safe including online
  • Have the opportunities to learn about diversity by exploring a range of values, beliefs, rights and responsibilities
  • have the foundations to be lifelong learners who are confident when meeting new challenges, resilient and, ultimately prepared for life and work in Britain today


Teaching and Learning

Along with following our scheme of work, we also pride ourselves on meeting our classes individual needs. Teachers regularly adapt or plan in additional lessons to meet the changing needs or priorities of our children. We also enrich our PSHE curriculum with a variety of outside agengies and visitors to ensure our children receive the most up to date and specialist teaching. This includes enlisting the NSPCC to support us when teaching us to 'Speak Out and Stay Safe', the Debt Awareness Programme and inviting parents into school to talk about their jobs during Careers Week.

Action Plan 2021- 2022

To ensure Jigsaw continues to be embedded and that  additional content is being taught to ensure a tailored curriculum. To assess the impact of our RSE from 2020 and check what we have taught is meeting the needs of our pupils and has been taught in line with Government guidelines.

We are very excited to be in the process of launching our new PSHE scheme, ‘Jigsaw.’

Kindly bought for us by the trustees, Jigsaw is a mindful approach to PSHE which brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. If children feel overwhelmed emotionally, carry worries and feel unable to talk about or process them, then this can have a real effect on their learning and achievement. As we return to school after much uncertainty over the past few months, we believe that Jigsaw will really help us our children to reconnect, build relationships and resilience now and for the future.

With soft toy Jigsaw-piece friends and Jerry the cat (to help us ‘paws’ for thought and encourage thinking times) allocated to each class, as well as calming chimes to encourage mindfulness, the scheme offers continuity through the years that the children can grow and develop with.

Each the year we will be covering the six jigsaw pieces:

  • Being Me in My World
  • Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me (including Sex Education)

Each of these will begin with a  whole school worship and then continue with work in class which will work towards an end product allowing children, staff and families to acknowledge and celebrate the learning achieved.

Under normal circumstances, we would have loved to invite you all into school to celebrate with us in launching Jigsaw and see the brilliant resources first hand. However, until we are able to invite to into school again, please find a link below for the launch assembly we shared with the children.
