PSHE

This page has information, links and resources that you can use at home to help your child's learning in PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education).

PSHE Curriculum statement

We want all of our pupils to become healthy, independent, kind and responsible members of society and to become increasingly aware of their own emotional and social growth. These skills will give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part their everyday lives.

Why is PSHE important?

PSHE is important because it:

  • Supports children and young people's safety and protection — online and offline
  • Supports mental and physical health and well-being, encouraging individual responsibility for staying fit and healthy and developing essential emergency life-saving skills
  • Supports academic attainment by addressing barriers that prevent children and young people from learning
  • Reduces the risks of drug and alcohol misuse and addictive behaviours
  • Improves employability and chances of career success by developing the personal and social skills demanded by commerce and industry, such as communication skills, personal responsibility and confidence.

What is the school's curriculum for PSHE?

South Green Juniors uses the 'Jigsaw' curriculum to teach PSHE

 

Jigsaw brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.

A lesson a week with the teaching resources included, helps teachers to focus on tailoring the lessons to their children’s needs and to enjoy building the relationship with their class, getting to know them better as unique human beings.

Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation.

Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.
