PSHE

Intent

PSHE (Personal Social Health Emotional) and the new statutory RHSE (Relationships Health and Sex Education) framework is fundamentally enabling children to develop confidently and valuing who they are as they grow. The Jigsaw scheme of work, is a whole school, child centered and mindful approach to PSHE. In PSHE it is important that we teach children the skills to be able to value themselves and others, understand who they are and to develop the skills they need for life. PSHE is taught from Nursery to Year 6. The Jigsaw scheme does this through a spiral and progressive curriculum, allowing children to build upon the previous knowledge they have gained. Appropriate learning is taught to individual year groups. We know that there are lots of challenges that face our young children. We know that PSHE, as a subject, when taught will enable children to be aware of their own self being, their mental health and well being. As a result of recent statutory guidance, children will be taught about their own health and the relationships that they have. This will be integrated through Jigsaw lessons and stand-alone lessons where applicable. This meets the requirement set out by the Education Act (2002) that we provide a broad and balanced curriculum.
