We teach PSHCE through the ‘Jigsaw’ programme ensures that the coverage and children’s progress are robust. Jigsaw is a whole-school approach that provides a scheme of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to, and including, Year 6.The units are tailored to each year group under the following themes: Being in my World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. High importance is placed on the teaching of PSHCE and it has a weekly time-tabled slot for taught lessons but teachers are continuously mindful in their approach to supporting our children to become well-adjusted and resilient learners as they continue their life’s journey.


Pupils are introduced to formal games like rugby, football and cricket through fun and supportive activities that teach ules skills and simple gameplay tactics, such as defending as a team. Pupils extend their skills in dance and gymnastics to include observing and reflecting on their own and others' perfomances. Units include opportunities to build on overall fitness.
