In line with the National Curriculum 2014, all schools must provide a curriculum that is broadly based, balanced and meets the needs of all pupils. Under section 78 of the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010, a PSHE curriculum:
• Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
• Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
At Green Lane Primary Academy, we teach Personal, Social and Health Education as whole-school approach to underpin children’s development as people and because we believe that this supports their learning capacity. It is a fundamental part of the children’s school experience.
At Green Lane Primary Academy, we have introduced a whole school PSHE programme called Jigsaw. Jigsaw combines PSHE, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development. The programme also includes statutory Relationships and Health Education.
We aim to deliver PSHE each week in order to teach the PSHE knowledge and skills in a developmental and age-appropriate way. There are six puzzles (half-termly units of work) each with six pieces (lessons). Every year group studies the same puzzle at the same time. They are sequentially ordered from September to July, allowing for whole school themes.
These explicit lessons are reinforced and enhanced in many ways including assemblies and collective worship. Class teachers deliver the lessons to their own classes.
We aim to ensure that all children:
• Develop confidence and responsibility and to make the most of their abilities
• Prepare to play an active role as citizens in Britain
• Develop a healthy, safer lifestyle
• Develop good relationships and to understand and celebrate the differences between people.
