Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE is an important aspect of our school curriculum and begins in the Early Years where it focuses on personal, social and emotional development. It is implicit in both the culture and ethos of Eton End which in turn promotes and supports the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of each child.
As a school, we use Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE. The Jigsaw programme of study is divided into six puzzles: Being me in my World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. This spiral curriculum covers all aspects of PSHE, including the statutory elements of Health and Relationships Education. The curriculum prepares all pupils for the opportunities and responsibilities of life and a solid understanding of Fundamental British Values.
PSHE is taught through timetabled lessons every week and through a whole breadth of opportunities offered in school life. PSED is taught within the seven areas of learning. PSHE makes a major contribution to the unique atmosphere of the school.
