Personal, Health & Social Education - PSHE

 

PSHE at Horfield School is taught on a regular basis through focussed lessons and circle times. They are given the opportunity to share their ideas and experiences in an environment in which they learn to communicate effectively.

We strongly believe that these experiences enable children to develop personal, physical and emotional well-being, which forms a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

The children follow a programme of different learning opportunities and experiences that help them grow and develop as individuals, as members of families and of different communities.

Jigsaw PSHE at Horfield School

Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time.

There are six Puzzles in Jigsaw that are designed to progress in sequence from September to July. Each Puzzle has six Pieces (lessons) which work towards an ‘end product’.

Each Piece has two Learning Intentions: one is based on specific PSHE learning (covering the non-statutory national framework for PSHE Education but enhanced to address children’s needs today); and one is based on emotional literacy and social skills development to enhance children’s emotional and mental health. The enhancements mean that Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, is relevant to children living in today’s world as it helps them understand and be equipped to cope with issues like body image, cyber and homophobic bullying, and internet safety.

Every Piece (lesson) contributes to at least one of these aspects of children’s development. This is mapped on each Piece and balanced across each year group.
