Personal, Social, Health Education & Sex and Relationships Education
The Personal, Social, Health Education and Sex and Relationships (PSHE) curriculum is taught across the school and is supported through assemblies. This allows information to be regularly shared and explored with children. It also allows for easier moderation and evaluation of skills development throughout the school. The curriculum intentionally revisits key areas to allow children to revisit opinions and knowledge as they mature.
Students at Chilton come from a wide demographic and as a result, some children lack breadth of experience and understanding to some aspects of PSHE. It is our intention that the PSHE curriculum offers all children the opportunity to be exposed to information and be taught about how to question opinions.
The school uses Jigsaw to plan lessons. This scheme has been chosen because it is comprehensive and fully meets the PSHE guidance and is supported by the PSHE association.
Assemblies are planned to support PSHE lessons using Jigsaw materials and resources linked to national, local and school trends, for example domestic violence or the NSPCC pants rule. No Outsiders resources are also used in assemblies to promote British Values.
The school invites visitors to the school to support the delivery of our PSHE. This is used to address any trends or concerns that our safeguarding work highlights.
Aims of the Personal, Social, Health Education & Sex and Relationships Education
The national curriculum for PSHE aims to ensure that schools teach a broad and balanced curriculum that:
- promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school;
- prepares pupils at the school of the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life;
- promotes British values.
Jigsaw covers all areas of PSHE for the primary phase including statutory Relationships and Health Education.
