Personal, Social, Health & Moral Education
The aim for PSHE education is to provide pupils with:
accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge
opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding
opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities
the skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives
opportunities to develop positive personal attributes such as resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem, and empathy
We use the Jigsaw scheme to teach PSHME - this is a whole school 'mindful approach' and has the following themes which are taught each year to all children:
- Being Me in My World
- Celebrating Difference
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me

Using Jigsaw helps us to teach children about the Protected Characteristics, and during 2022-2023, we are participating in the Equaliteach project which will enable us to further develop our understanding of these characteristics. By doing this work, we can ensure that everyone in our school family is treated fairly and with respect and understanding, as well as meeting our legal duties.
