PSHE and Citizenship

Delivery of the Curriculum
We have a comprehensive scheme of work called Jigsaw which is delivered each week. Please use the link to see the long term plans for each year group.

Intent:   

At St. Clare’s Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Implementation:

We teach PSHE at St Clare’s through the Jigsaw scheme.  During weekly whole class Jigsaw lessons will focus on different topics each term.  Children are encouraged to use the skills they are developing and to make links to other areas of learning wherever possible.  The aims of PSHE and Jigsaw within our school are to provide children with accurate and relevant knowledge, opportunities to create personal understanding, opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities and a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life.

Jigsaw deals with the diverse beliefs, values and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. It helps pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, and their ability to communicate their feelings. Children will also acquire an understanding and experiences of British values that are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.

Whole school and key stage assemblies will also deliver teaching in many areas of the PSHE curriculum.  The RE Curriculum and our Catholic life also provides opportunities for learning and development in PSHE.
