Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE)
At Priors Field we follow the ‘Jigsaw’ PSHE curriculum which holds children at its heart. 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 lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration, focus and self-regulation.
'Jigsaw' offers a comprehensive programme for Primary PSHE, including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
Relationships, Sex & Health Education (RSHE)
RSHE is an important and statutory part of the PSHE curriculum. In Reception and KS1 children are taught about growing up, using the correct terminology for body parts. In KS2 the concepts of puberty and human reproduction are gradually introduced so that children are well prepared for secondary school. All of the content is taught sensitively and at an age-appropriate level.
We very much value our home school partnership in the delivery of our RSHE curriculum, and parents/carers can click here for a guide which gives an overview of the learning for each year group, as well as some tips for conversations which may arise at home as a consequence of these lessons. Parents and carers may also request a temporary link to the Jigsaw website from their child’s class teacher if they wish to explore the learning materials in more detail.
