Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Personal, Social and Health Education helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, as well as helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

At Radstock Primary School, we teach PSHE using Jigsaw, which is a comprehensive Scheme of Work for the whole primary school from Nursery through to Year 6.  Jigsaw is taught through a planned programme of topics which can be revisited as children grow and mature through the school.  There are six jigsaw puzzle pieces of learning: Being me in my world; Celebrating differences; Dreams and goals; Healthy me; Relationships; and Changing me.

Jigsaw aims to provide a range of opportunities and contexts for pupils to develop self-awareness, positive self-esteem and confidence in order to stay as healthy as possible; keep themselves and others safe; have worthwhile and fulfilling relationships; respect the differences between people; develop independence and responsibility; play an active role as members of a democratic society and to make the most of their own and others’ abilities. SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout.

The Parents' Guide below provides you with further information about the Jigsaw programme.
