Here are some of the things children in Scargill have said about PSHE:
"We learn special things to keep us calm. It helps us when we feel worried." Year 1 Pupil
"I like it because there is no right or wrong answers. We just get to share our feelings" Year 2 Pupil
"It's all about your mental and physical health and we learn how to look after both" Year 3 Pupil
"I feel like we can dive deeper and get to know each other better" Year 4 Pupil
"It teaches me how to be a good leader, work with others and make friends" Year 5 Pupil
"PSHE helps get me ready for Secondary School." Year 6 Pupil
We teach PSHE through the Jigsaw Programme, which is a whole-school approach. This covers all areas of PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education. The table below gives the learning theme of each of the six Puzzles (units) and these are taught across the school; the learning deepens and broadens every year.
The Jigsaw approach embodies a positive philosophy, creative teaching and learning activities to nurture children’s development as compassionate and well-rounded human beings as well as building their capacity to learn through Relationships and Health Education, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.
