PSHE

Personal, Health and Social Education

I show empathy and compassion. I am learning how to disagree with people and debate in a healthy way. I understand what I need to feel OK and how to ask for help when I don't. I am curious about diversity and differences and seek to understand that which is unfamiliar to me. I can ask questions about my body and I understand the physical and emotional changes that may happen as I grow older.  I understand that mental health is just as important as physical health and how I can aspire to achieve both.

PSHE Champions

PSHE Champions 1 Miss Cotgreave: I strongly believe that children’s well-being is the most important aspect of their development and learning. Once children are happy, many aspects of their lives, including their learning at school, become easier. It is my role to ensure that St Petroc’s is following a well-planned and delivered PSHE programme to enable children to understand how they are developing personally and socially. I feel it is important to encourage our children at St Petroc’s to develop their sense of self-worth and to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
PSHE Champions 2 Miss MacQuarrie: Understanding ourselves is a key aspect in growing into happy, confident and compassionate adults. A strong PSHE curriculum together with a nurturing whole school ethos is key to enabling children to feel, understand and accept their own feelings and the feelings of others. I believe that having emotional intelligence and being able to express and talk about difficult subjects in a healthy way, is key when resolving conflict, having aspirations and facing challenges.

IMPLEMENTATION

At St Petroc’s, we are following the ‘Jigsaw’ PSHE scheme. Jigsaw, the mindful approach, brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy social skills and spiritual development in a detailed and comprehensive whole school scheme of learning covering six units of work (puzzles):

·         Being Me in my World

·         Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)

·         Dreams and Goals

·         Healthy Me

·         Relationships

·         Changing me (including Sex Education)

All year groups work on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time and each Puzzle starts with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. Knowledge and social skills are taught progressively across the school in one hour-long lesson (Piece) each week, which work towards an end product. Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful to preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation.

Jigsaw is more than just a PSHE scheme. It provides a structured programme of personal development across the whole school to nurture the ‘whole child’ and increase learning capacity, underpinned by mindfulness philosophy and practise. It aims to prepare children for life, helping them to really know and value who they truly are and understand how they relate to each other in this ever-changing world.
