PSHE is taught through the Jigsaw scheme of work. As a school, we aim to provide children with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community.

Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the school and our community. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.


Jigsaw PSHE will support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enables pupils to:

  • Have a sense of purpose

  • Value self and others

  • Form relationships

  • Make and act on informed decisions

  • Communicate effectively

  • Work with others

  • Respond to challenge

  • Be an active partner in their own learning

  • Be active citizens within the local community

  • Explore issues related to living in a democratic society

  • Become healthy and fulfilled individuals

Unicef Rights Respecting School Award

Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.

We are pleased to share with you all that we have now achieved the Silver: Rights Aware award!

How can parents support their child to learn about the Convention at home?

  • Take the time to ask your child what he/she has learnt recently regarding children’s rights and how they may show respect for those rights.
  • Discuss the ideas learned in class, and try to think of examples from your own experiences, or from the media, of rights being respected or denied.
  • Discuss how your child or your family can promote respect for rights, or help those whose rights have been violated.
  • Model using rights and respect language with your children.
  • Ask your child’s opinion on children’s rights.
