Blenhein Primary School

PSHE

 

Why PSHE is important 

We want Sheringham children to grow up to be happy and confident adults ready to face the challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up. Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a 

subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

How our PSHE curriculum is designed 

Our curriculum follows the JIGSAW PSHE syllabus. 

JIGSAW session are taught weekly following the established whole school programme of study. We follow the six termly themes; Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships, Changing Me. 

Our assemblies are often linked to the pieces in Jigsaw too. As well as Jigsaw PSHE, teachers integrate PSHE into the curriculum through other areas such as geography and science. At Sheringham, we our proud of how we safeguard our children through workshops, to ensure that every child knows how to keep themselves safe. 

The teaching of RSE follows our school Policy. The aim of it is to support children in developing safe relationships, self-esteem and making well-informed decisions. We use an adapted version of Jigsaw, through the Changing Me piece for all children in Summer term, as well as teaching for some year groups through science when learning about animals. Parents will always be invited in via the newsletter, to view the resources used and discuss any questions before the lessons take place.
