PSHE

‘Education, in the true sense, is the understanding of oneself, for it is within each one of us that the whole of existence is gathered.’

Krishnamurti

 

At Walesby C. of E. Primary School, we provide a nurturing learning environment in which each child is valued as an individual and encouraged to develop to their full potential, where their achievements and successes both in and out of school are celebrated and rewarded.

 

Weaving through the heart of our PSHE teaching, is a commitment to enhancing and promoting our core Christian Values  and the ‘Walesby Way.’ 

 

Our mindful approach to PSHE and our Christian values are rooted in all areas of our curriculum. PSHE is at the core of everything we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.

 

This approach gives our children meaningful learning experiences to help them navigate their world and develop positive relationships with themselves and others. It enables our children to build resilience and nurtures their mental wellbeing.

 

At Walesby C. of E. Primary School, our children are given opportunities to reflect on healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, and we are proud to a Stonewall School.

 

 

We teach the majority of our PSHE curriculum using a scheme called Jigsaw.  Jigsaw PSHE fully supports the Church of England Principles and Charter in relation to RSHE.

 

 Jigsaw combines PSHE, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.  Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they related to other people in this ever-changing world.

Jigsaw is a spiral curriculum, where topics are introduced and learning built week on week and year on year.  All lessons are delivered in an age- and stage-appropriate way so that they meet our children’s needs.

 

There are six Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with six Pieces (lessons).  Every class studies the same Puzzle at the same time (sequentially ordered from September to July).  This allows for whole school themes to be shared and celebrated across the school.

 

The different puzzles:

 

Autumn Term 1

Being Me in My World

Autumn Term 2

Celebrating Difference

Spring term 1

Dreams and Goals

Spring Term 2

Healthy Me

Summer Term 1

Relationships

Summer Term 2

What our children say:

 

I love our Jigsaw character, I can talk to it about my worries.

 

         The music helps me to feel calm inside.

 

It makes me feel confident - I believe I can do it.

 

It helps me talk more about my feelings.

 

         The games help me play with everyone.

 

I love all the songs, they help me understand what we are thinking about.
