Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is taught weekly to all of our pupils here at St Andrew’s.
PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children to stay healthy and safe, whilst preparing them to make the most of life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, helping them to achieve their potential.
We follow the statutory guidance from the Department of Education, which sets out what schools must cover in their PSHE lessons from September 2020. We follow the Jigsaw Scheme of Work, as do the pupils when they move to the Junior School for Key Stage 2.
Although we do follow the sequential and progressive Jigsaw programme at both schools, we do not limit our lessons to the statutory content. We cover in an age appropriate level economic wellbeing and personal safety.
