PSHE

PSHE – Jigsaw (Personal Social Health Economic) 

 

What is PSHE Education?

 

PSHE (personal, social, health and economic 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. Our pupils are encouraged to develop their self-worth by developing their resilience, determination, self-esteem and confidence by playing positive roles in contributing to School life and the wider community. We work hard to ensure that all we learn is put into practice within our own smaller community, in preparation for life beyond as responsible citizens.

In doing so they will learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. Through our PSHE curriculum our children will be able to reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Our children will learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

 We teach PSHE once a week and follow a spiral curriculum that revisits and builds on learning from previous years. There is plenty of opportunity throughout the School year to incorporate PSHE through other areas of the School curriculum and whole School events.

 

Bromet Primary School follows the Jigsaw Programme to teach PSHE to our children.

 

 

Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.  A variety of teaching strategies are used and we are mindful of each child’s preferred learning style.  Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time.  This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.  There is a Weekly Celebration that highlights a theme from that week’s lessons across the school, and encourages children to try to reflect that learning in their behaviour and attitudes.

 

Whole School Community

Children at Bromet are given many opportunities to be part of the whole school community on a regular basis. Some of the responsibilities in which our children regularly participate  include:

Buddying- year 5 and year R

School Council- 2 representatives from each year group

School Librarians- year 6,

Play-leaders- year 5,

Cross key stage readers- UKS2 and KS1

House captains for  school sports events- year 6

Lunch time monitors- year 2 up

 

Recovery Curriculum

At Bromet your child’s well-being  will be at the centre of our thinking.  We acknowledge that the children will have had different experiences during this time. We are aware that a  common thread running through all is the loss of routine, structure, friendship, opportunity and freedom.  These losses can trigger anxiety in any child.  We know that an anxious child is not in a place to learn effectively. Teachers will work to help children come back into school life, acknowledging the experiences they have had. 

We will cover prior learning in the Autumn term  in order to support children further develop their skills and build on previous learning.

SMSC AT BROMET

What is SMSC?

This stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.

 

This is not a subject but something that is everywhere in our school: in lessons, in the playground, in our relationships, in our thinking, in our values.
