Here at Collis our PSHE provision focuses on supporting children develop the skills to build and maintain friendships, to recognise and manage their emotions, to know how to keep themselves safe, to understand and manage change in their lives, including their bodies and for Year 6 children, the change as they transfer to secondary school. We understand that that the personal and social development of each child has a significant role in their ability to learn and achieve.
In Collis the PSHE runs through every part of the school, it is under scored by the 5Cs and is thought both directly and indirectly and is part of the school culture. We use the Jigsaw programme to provide framework for the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in Modern Britain.
PSHE is interwoven with the 5Cs and immersed in the daily life of the school and seen in the life and concerns of the school council, assemblies, bake sales. Well being is prioritised, we have a well being teacher and a special well being room where PSHE lessons, circle time, relaxation and meditation can take place.
The jigsaw curriculum is covered through weekly PSHE lessons providing children with relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
Jigsaw PSHE consists of six half-term units of work:
Term 1: Being Me in my World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing me (including Sex Education)
Relationships and Health Education objectives are taught throughout these units, however they are mostly covered in term 5- Relationships and 6 - Changing me.
Teaching PSHE this way, provides children with a cohesive vision, helping them to understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world.
