What is our aim for PSHE (Intent) At Springfield Juniors, the PSHE curriculum ensures that all pupils gain the knowledge, skills and attributes which are needed to keep themselves healthy (physically and emotionally), safe and prepare them for life and work in society. PSHE education can also help pupils achieve their academic potential as well as provide pupils with the skills to manage their opportunities, challenges and responsibilities when growing up. Here at Springfield Juniors, we aim to ensure that our school drivers are woven through our curriculum as a whole and as such, are ever present within PSHE.
What does this look like in our classrooms? (Implementation) PSHE is being taught once a week through our Jisgsaw scheme. We promote a safe, open and positive learning environment based on trusting relationships between all the members of the class, adults and children alike. We encourage children to: take turns speaking, use kind and positive words, listen to each other, accept each other’s uniqueness and differences and respect each other’s privacy. We record our ideas in a variety of ways including written activities, pictures, discussions and reflection sheets. Jigsaw is broken down into six units of work: Term 1: Being in my world Term 2: Celebrating Difference Term 3: Dreams and Goals Term 4: Healthy Me Term 5: Relationships Term 6: Changing Me (including Sex Education)
