Our PSHE curriculum, at Stock Church of England Primary School, is centered around Personal, Social and Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development. Through our learning it is our intention to prepare children for life outside of school, helping them to understand and value who they are and to know how to relate to other people in our ever-changing world, all underpinned by the strong foundation of our school gospel values.
We support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enable pupils to
- Have a sense of purpose
- Value self and others
- Form relationships
- Make and act on informed decisions
- Communicate effectively
- Work with others
- Respond to challenge
- Be an active partner in their own learning
- Be active citizens within the local community
- Explore issues related to living in a democratic society
- Become healthy and fulfilled individuals
As a school, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to encourage mutual respect, responsibility and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere
To deliver this curriculum we use a resource called ‘Jigsaw PSHE’.
There are 6 Jigsaw Puzzles (half-termly units of work), each launched with a whole school assembly, designed to ensure the whole school can study the same learning theme at the same time. The units are carefully planned and resourced so that each year group works at its own level, spiralling and strengthening the development of skills as the children progress through the school.
All lessons include time for mindfulness activities where children practise breathing and focus. Each lesson (puzzle piece) has two learning intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.
Through our curriculum, we believe we can enhance children’s education and help them grow up to become caring, respectful and confident individuals.
