PSHE Curriculum Intent
At Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy, the aim of PSHE is to deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more.
We aim for all children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We provide opportunities for children to explore moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up which in turn supports the development of essential skills and provides the opportunity for children to make safe and informed choices.
We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Strong links are made with our curriculum drivers, our School Values as well as fundamental British values.
PSHE Programme of Study
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential.
Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, is a progressive and spiral scheme of learning. In planning the lessons, Jigsaw PSHE ensures that learning from previous years is revisited and extended, adding new concepts, knowledge and skills, year on year as appropriate. The table below draws out the spiral knowledge and skills progression within all six Puzzles (units of work) including the key vocabulary used in each year group; explicit links to the DfE statutory Relationships and Health Education outcomes have been made in each Puzzle.
Jigsaw holds children at its heart, and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration, focus and self-regulation.
Jigsaw 3-11 offers a comprehensive programme for Primary PSHE, including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
This can be established through assessment identified in the key learning.
In Early Years
Continuous Provision is carefully planned to ensure development in Physical, Social and Emotional Development (PSED). Opportunities are carefully planned to encourage children will explore the ideas of relationships, feelings and appropriate behaviours, self-confidence and self-awareness, rules and routines and empathy.
Our PSHE curriculum is designed to encourage a progression of children's understanding and skills. By the end of their time at Wolverley Sebright, we aim for all children to be well-rounded citizens who can make safe and informed choices in life as well as play an active role in society.
