Organisation and Planning
PSHE is delivered in a variety of ways such as circle time, role play, group work, discussion as incidents occur, assemblies and visits. The principles of PSHE are integral to all aspects of their education and experience at our school.
At Grove Road we will be following Jigsaw PSHE. Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Years F1 and 2 through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people the world.
Jigsaw PSHE is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly (with an original song), generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. The Weekly Celebration highlights a theme from that week’s lesson across the school, and encourages children to reflect that learning in their behaviour and attitudes.
The 6 Puzzles:
Autumn 1:Being Me in My World
Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community.
Autumn 2:Celebrating Difference
Includes anti-bullying (cyber and homophobic bullying included) and diversity work.
Spring 1:Dreams and Goals
