PSHE Implementation Statement
At Intack Primary School, every class follows the PSHE Jigsaw Scheme of Work and SCARF (CORAM Life Education) and through this curriculum, we cover the National Curriculum guidance for PSHE. In addition to this, PSHE is also taught within other subject areas and as part of the creative curriculum through class topics. PSHE will be addressed on a daily basis as questions and incidents arise. At times, teachers may choose to hold a circle-time sessions in response to a particular event or issue. Whole school and Key Stage assemblies will provide extra opportunities to enhance pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, promoting our school’s values and celebrating achievement.
Scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum
Our PSHE curriculum has core learning themes: Families and people who care for me, Health and Wellbeing, Respectful Relationships, Caring Friendships, Online relationships, Being Safe and Living in the wider world. It also incorporates the RSE policy and identifies links to British Values, Cultural Capital, SMSC and schools Key skills into the curriculum.
Activities are planned according to the different levels of children’s skills and previous knowledge.
