PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
At Moseley CE Primary we use Jigsaw, which is a comprehensive scheme of work that ensures the current Primary PSHE objectives are taught at age appropriate levels; from Reception through to Year 6. It integrates personal, social, health and economic education with emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and social, moral, spiritual and cultural development (SMSC).
Each half term we have a whole school Jigsaw theme are:
|AUTUMN 1||AUTUMN 2||SPRING 1||SPRING 2||SUMMER 1||SUMMER 2|
Being me in my world
Dreams and goals
At Moseley C of E, we deliver a curriculum that supports the children in learning to know and value who they are and how they relate to other people in our ever-changing world. We promote the importance of understanding and respecting our common humanity, diversity and differences, so that they can go on to form effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
Through Jigsaw, topics that are relevant to children living in today’s world are covered such as body image, cyber and homophobic bullying, and internet safety.
Jigsaw’s mindful approach teaches children to become aware of their own thoughts and feelings. Each Jigsaw lesson begins with ‘calm me’ time so that children feel relaxed and ready to start their learning. The breathing techniques learnt can then be used by the children at other times.
Across each year, the children learn about their responsibilities, rights and duties as individuals and members of communities. They are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of our school and communities.
Opportunities for responsibilities in school include Class Advocates, Singing Playground Leaders, Play Leaders, School Council and Values Ambassadors.
Statutory guidance for Relationships Education (Primary) can be found using this link.
The focus in primary school should be on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults.
Our PSHE (Jigsaw) and RSE Policy details our school's approach to delivering Relationships Education. The RSE overview maps give further details about how our PSHE ensures coverage of the statutory requirements. This information can be found in the files below.
'The distinguishing feature of geniuses is their passion and dedication to their craft, and particularly, the way in which they identify, confront and take pains to remedy their weaknesses.' (Good, Rattan, & Dweck, 2008)
It's not what we are born with it's our mindset that matters. Research into Growth Mindset shows that intelligence is a quality that can be changed and developed.
What are we doing in school to instill a growth mindset?
- Growth mindset sessions
- Celebrating mistakes
- Praising effort
- Staff training
- Reflecting on our language and feedback.
