PSHE - Personal, Social, Health Education

Statement of Intent

Be kind and respectful – Our children will learn to be kind to others, resolve conflict and respect those who are different to ourselves. They will learn empathy and skills to form and maintain good relationships.

Take care – Our children will lead healthy, safe and balanced lives, learn to look after their mental and physical wellbeing, grow in confidence and become independent in their decisions.

Be responsible – Our children will learn how to make good choices, and to think about the consequences of the choices they make. They will care for our environment and our school, and wider, community.

Challenge myself – Our children will challenge their own, and society’s assumptions, and stereotypes. They will challenge their own opinions and those of others through respectful and critical debate and discussion.

Be reflective – Our children reflect on their values, beliefs and what makes them individual. Our children will value those qualities and talents that make them unique, and value those qualities in others too. They will reflect on the progress they have made, and set goals for the future.

Imagine – Our children will be able to imagine what a better world would look like. They will be creative and enterprising. Our children will be ambitious, making positive learning and career choices.

At Willingdon Primary School, we teach PSHE using the Jigsaw Scheme of work. This is a whole school approach to PSHE, which is a spiral curriculum. The whole school learns and explores within 6 themes, one theme each term: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. The Relationships and Changing Me theme in Terms 5 and 6 covers the statutory guidance for Relationships and Sex education, but there are links within all the themes. 

Through regular PSHE lessons, the children are given the space to be mindful and reflect upon their own thoughts and opinions, to listen to the ideas of others and to challenge any prejudices, stereotypes or negative ideas. The lessons are an opportunity to discuss, think deeply and develop their own personal views.
