PSHE is central to giving pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed and responsible British citizens. It underpins our curriculum and is woven through all areas of school life.
We want all pupils at Field House to recognise their own value, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. We foster positive attitudes which promote:
- Health and wellbeing – valuing their own identity, managing risks and making safe decisions
- Relationships - respecting difference and diversity, forming effective, fulfilling relationships that are essential to life and learning
- Living in the wider world – contributing to school life and the community
We teach PSHE through the acclaimed Jigsaw scheme. This was chosen as it has a huge focus on emotional literacy and emotional health. Jigsaw is a whole-school approach, that establishes consistency and gives all teachers confidence to deliver high-quality lessons. Not only does Jigsaw meet all statutory RSHE requirements, but it also elevates educational outcomes together with mental health and safeguarding.
Jigsaw nurtures children to be confident and successful, increasing their capacity to learn and preparing them for the challenges of the modern world. Developed by teachers and well-being experts, Jigsaw provides children with opportunities to develop their emotional intelligence and life skills.
All children received a time-tabled Jigsaw slot every week to receive personal, social, emotional and health education through. Lessons are fully planned and resourced and aligned to the appropriate national frameworks. They each integrate emotional literacy, self-regulation, and social skills in an easy session per week.
