PSHE (Personal Social Health and Economic) and Sex and Relationship Education
At Castle Primary School, we aim for children to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives – now and in the future.
During their time at Castle Primary School, children are taught using the Jigsaw Scheme of work. This scheme promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children. It prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life and allows children to learn about the British Values.
The PSHE curriculum is divided into six core themes and these are covered in each term across the academic year (each unit of work is known as a ‘Puzzle’ piece in the Jigsaw scheme). Across the school, each class is taught the same unit at the same time but in an age appropriate way. This allows us to respond to the children’s needs and ensure that the new areas of learning are always built upon existing knowledge. There are 6 different units which are covered:
- Being Me in my World
- Celebrating Difference
- Going for Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
Our Relationships and Sex Education curriculum is taught during our Changing Me unit in the summer term. The content of the Sex Education Syllabus is designed in accordance with Jigsaw’s guidelines and with the approval of the school governors. Sex Education is delivered informally as part of our teaching on Health, Personal and Social Education and National Curriculum Science. Staff will respond sensitively and appropriately to any enquiries from the children.
