Parkend Primary School

Personal, Social, Health Education &

Relationships, Sex, Health Education 

At Parkend we believe that the PSHE curriculum should provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their schools and communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up in today’s modern world.

They learn to understand and respect our common humanity: diversity and differences to become confident, tolerant well-rounded adults who can form fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

At Parkend, we choose to deliver Personal, Social, and Health Education and RSE using Jigsaw.  Jigsaw is a scheme of work that covers the DfE Guidance for their new Physical Health, Mental Wellbeing and Relationships Education for Primary Schools. This is a compulsory guidance document for schools. Jigsaw uses children’s picture books to start age appropriate discussions with children about meaningful issues within society. Children are encouraged to take part in discussions and activities which include other groups of pupils, grown ups at home and parts of the community. Jigsaw also aims to encourage a love of reading and to increase vocabulary understanding. 

The lessons taught in school help children to develop skills such as understanding another’s point of view, working in a group, sticking at things when they get difficult, resolving conflict and managing worries.

Jigsaw PSHE will 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
