Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
At Trumps Green Infant School, our intent is to encourage our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our PSHE curriculum is at the very heart of this. We believe that through our whole school approach to PSHE we enable our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally and socially. It is our intent that our children will be ‘lifelong learners’ with the confidence and ability to develop their skills and understanding when having new experience. We provide a nurturing learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop their full potential. Our PSHE curriculum equips our pupils with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. Ultimately, we aim for our children to leave Trumps Green with the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in their future. With an ever changing society we are able to provide them with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and wider community.
- PSHE is taught through the whole school Jigsaw programme. This is a comprehensive and progressive scheme work supported by clear skills and knowledge progression, which gives our children the relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
- The Jigsaw curriculum is taught weekly in six half term units:
- Term 1: Being Me in My World
- Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying
- Term 3: Dreams and Goals
- Term 4: Healthy Me
- Term 5: Relationships
- Term 6: Changing me (including Sex Education)
- Each lesson has two learning intentions; one linked to Relationship and Health Education and one designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.
- Throughout the PSHE curriculum children acquire an understanding and experience of the British Values which enable them to value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.
- Units are launched through whole school assemblies. Learning is embedded throughout the school day with children encouraged to interact using the skills they have learnt.
- Each lesson features collaborative learning experiences, mindful reflection, engagement activities and learning reflection times.
- Teaching and learning is evaluated by learning walks, drop ins, moderation sessions, pupil interviews and work scrutinies.
- It is our aim that all children will have a ready willingness and ability to try new things, push themselves and persevere. To have an appreciation of what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multicultural society. To have a strong self-awareness, interlinked with compassion of others.
