Our Curriculum

Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE)

High quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education for all our pupils

The Synergy Schools Federation has incorporated the Jigsaw scheme of work for PSHE. This excellent scheme offers a comprehensive programme for primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.

With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, our focused teaching ensures that we provide engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. The Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

The Jigsaw programme also enables us to have a carefully sequenced Relationships, Sex and Health Education curriculum that includes learning about sexual harassment and sexual violence. This is met in an age-appropriate way where we begin with the basics on how we treat each other, consider different forms of relationships, consent, respect for others and issues relating to privacy into the broad based PSHE curriculum to support more specific work on this as children get older. Jigsaw builds in work on relationships, with specific emphasis on this in the first part of the summer term and encourages teachers and children to discuss these issues in a safe learning environment. The lesson content promotes a direct approach of enabling understanding of what a good friendship is, healthy relationships and in upper key stage 2, moving onto what a healthy relationship looks like with a boyfriend or girlfriend (which can include same sex relationships).
