Purpose of Study
To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Pupils can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support. High quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of these subjects can help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. They can also enable schools to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, at school and in society.
Jigsaw Flagship School
We are delighted that we have been awarded the status of being a Jigsaw Flagship School. This is awarded to schools to recognise their commitment to: PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) by fully implementing Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE; children’s well-being and mental health and learning; creating a positive learning community and willingness to share their expertise with others.
As a school we wholeheartedly believe in the importance of developing emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in every child. Through the adoption of Jigsaw PSHE as a whole school approach we are able to connect the pieces of personal, social and health education in line with our school values and ethos.
