Our PSHE Curriculum:

We use the scheme of work 'Jigsaw' as our PSHE curriculum. Jigsaw brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme. Each half term, the whole school focuses on a specific theme:

Designed as a whole school approach, Jigsaw provides a comprehensive scheme of learning for Foundation Stage to Year 6.

Jigsaw holds children at its heart and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value who they are and how they fit and contribute to the world.

An overview of what is taught in our PSHE curriculum each half term for each year group. Please note that in 2023/24, both Years 3 and 4 will follow the ages 8-9 programme, and then in 2024/25 will follow the ages 7-8 programme. This is as we have a mixed age class, and teaching on a cycle will ensure all children receive both programmes during their time in Years 3 and 4.

Relationships & Sex Education (RSE):

RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. RSE involves a combination of sharing information and exploring issues and values. RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity.

RSE is chiefly taught within the personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education curriculum. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum, and other aspects are included in religious education (RE). Relationships education focuses on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships including:

  • Families and people who care for me
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe

For more information about our RSE curriculum, see Appendices 1 and 2 of our RSE policy. These areas of learning are taught within the context of family life taking care to ensure that there is no stigmatisation of children based on their home circumstances (families can include single parent families, LGBT parents, families headed by grandparents, adoptive parents, foster parents/carers amongst other structures) along with reflecting sensitively that some children may have a different structure of support around them (for example: looked after children or young carers).
