At Court de Wyck, Our PSHE curriculum is based on the following principles:
We work from a carefully thought-through Scheme of Work which brings consistency and progression to our children’s learning in this vital curriculum area. The Jigsaw Programme supports the “Personal Development” and “Behaviour and Attitude” aspects evaluated under the Ofsted Inspection Framework, as well as significantly contributing to the school’s Safeguarding and Equality Duties, the Government’s British Values aganda and the SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural) development opportunities provided for our children.
There are six Puzzles in Jigsaw (quickly identified by their colour scheme) designed to progress in sequence from the beginning of each academic year:
Term 1: Being Me in My World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing Me (including Puberty and Human Reproduction Education)
Each Puzzle has six Pieces (lessons) which work towards an ‘end product’, for example, The School Learning Charter or The Garden of Dreams and Goals.
Each Piece has two Learning Intentions: one is based on specific PSHE/HWB learning (purple) and the other based on emotional literacy and social skills development (green).
The whole school works on the same Puzzle at the same time, meaning that each Puzzle can be celebrated by the whole school in a meaningful way.
We were delighted to receive our Healthy Schools Network Certificate for 2021 - 2022. We have been working really hard this year on achieving our next one in July.
