At the heart of our PSHE teaching is a commitment to enhancing and promoting our core Christian values; Generosity, Compassion, Perseverance, Forgiveness, Friendship and Truthfulness. The teaching and learning of PSHE using the Jigsaw programme also supports this. Through Jigsaw, our children will acquire knowledge, understanding and the skills they need to manage their lives now and in their futures. 


 PSHE is delivered through weekly whole class lessons that follow the Jigsaw program, a whole school approach where appropriate and individual lessons that are planned by teachers to address particular needs in a timely manner. Termly topics include: Being Me in My World; Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying); Dreams and Goals; Healthy Me; Relationships; Changing Me (including Sex Education)

Our PSHE curriculum aims to provide children with accurate and relevant knowledge and provide opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities that develops skills and strategies for a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced future life.


 Children:  have a willingness to learn and ability to try new things; develop resilience and perseverance; understand how to stay safe, healthy and develop good relationships; appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multicultural society; are caring, respectful and confident individuals, demonstrating our Christian values daily.
