Personal, Social And Health Education (PSHE)


Our school is a learning environment where each child is encouraged to develop their full potential and where their achievements are celebrated.  We believe that all individuals are of equal worth and we seek to foster mutual respect and responsibility in a happy, caring Christian atmosphere.  The teaching and learning of PSHE supports this vision.

PSHE deals directly with diverse values, beliefs and attitudes of individuals.  It helps pupils acquire modern British values which are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences, value themselves, respect others, appreciate difference and diversity and feel confident and informed British citizens.

At Wroot Travis Charity C of E Primary School we use the Jigsaw scheme of work to deliver PSHE lessons.  Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.  Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (puzzle) at the same time.  For more information go to http://www.jigsawpshe.com

The PSHE overview can be found here

The six Jigsaw puzzles are:

Autumn 1: Being Me in My World - Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community as well as devising Learning Charters.

Autumn 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying) - Includes anti-bullying (cyber and homophobic bullying included) and diversity work.

Spring 1: Dreams and Goals - Includes goal-setting, aspirations for yourself and the world and working together.

Spring 2: Healthy Me - Includes drugs and alcohol education, self-esteem and confidence as well as healthy lifestyle choices.

Summer 1: Relationships - Includes understanding friendship, family and other relationships, conflict resolution and communication skills.

Summer 2: Changing Me - This puzzle includes sex and relationships education in the context of coping positively with change.  Sex Education is also covered by a team from Big Talk Education.

Relationship and Sex Education- RSE curriculum

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance on this can be found  here.

The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being. 

Consequently, from September 2020, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), along with Health Education, will be statutory, and form part of the National Curriculum.

We have reviewed our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and disabilitie

Our RSE Policy can be found here

To help you further understand the curriculum requirements, please look at the information below which provides more detail.
