PSHE at Haslam Park Primary School:
PSHE - Subject Leader Mrs A Newton
Here at Haslam Park Primary School we recognise the value that a high quality PSHE Education curriculum can offer to our pupils and how well it prepares the children for the next part in their lives. For example in our summer ‘Changing Me’ unit we talk about physical changes the children may be experiences, as well as preparing children for transition work into the next academic year. Our first autumn term unit ‘Being Me in My World’ ensures children have a sense of belonging within their new class. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
The Jigsaw PSHCE curriculum aims to:
- Keep children safe and healthy
- To build healthy relationships
- To be a positive member of a diverse and multicultural society.
- To be self-aware
- To be compassionate with others
- To be ambitious and confident
- To be resilient
- Prepare children for changes
“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 and focus.” Jigsaw 2020
Our curriculum is a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, preparing children for adult life, helping them really know and value who they truly are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life.
Our whole curriculum is shaped by our school vision which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability, additional needs, and to explore, learn and grow. We teach children skills within JIGSAW lessons which children can implement in other areas of learning, for example calming strategies and mindfulness. PSHE, BV and SMSC displays throughout school reinforce the PSHE curriculum enabling children to make links.
We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Jigsaw PSHE directs our aim on developing the “whole child” through a spiral curriculum approach to developing knowledge, skills and understanding in the areas of;
- Being Me in My World
- Celebrating Difference
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
It also identifies links to British Values, and SMSC and is taught in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and ethos of the school.
By the time children leave Haslam Park they will:
- Have a ready willingness and ability to try new things, push themselves and persevere.
- Have a good understanding of how to stay safe, healthy and develop good relationships.
- Have an appreciation of what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multicultural society.
- Be able to look after their mental health and well-being
- Be able to understand and manage their emotions
- Recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty
*In light of the impact of school closures on children’s mental health, Haslam Park incorporated extra PSHE/wellbeing sessions to support the children to adjust to daily life. Our pupils' mental health, wellbeing and understanding of communication and relationships has been a priority during the pandemic, and will continue to be moving forward. Jigsaw lessons provide our children with the opportunity to share and speak about issues they are experiencing; as such, teachers will adjust their approach to reflect any experiences or issues raised by the pupils during the lessons.
