What PSHE looks like at Shaw Ridge School

What a PSHE lesson can look like in our school:

  • A variety of opportunities for children to explore diverse beliefs, cultures and identities and the values we share being British and global citizens
  • Children working individually or collaboratively to develop their own thoughts, ideas and values
  • Follow ‘Jigsaw’ scheme of work which includes a well-planned ‘Progression of Skills’ to enable the children to work on and develop new skills in each Year. Each year, children learn about the following topics: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me.
  • Current affairs, when appropriate, are discussed openly

This is our philosophy:

  • Children learning through exploring different values whilst acquiring new skills.
  • Children developing an awareness of British values, their rights and responsibilities
  • To provide children with experiences to help them develop their understanding of different values, thoughts and feelings
  • To celebrate and explore diversity
  • Each month a core value is focused on. Those being: aspiration, cooperation, courage, curiosity, friendship, honesty, independence, pride, resilience, respect and tolerance.

This is what we do:

  • Each year group have different PSHE skills to focus on. The children will then progress through the skills as they move up the school.
  • The skills are covered through Jigsaw scheme of work (mapped across the whole school) which enables the children to develop and use that skill.
  • Each year, the children will have taken part in a democratic vote
  • Lessons may be taught discreetly or as a block of lessons – making links with other areas of the curriculum are embraced to provide a more meaningful learning experience
  • KS2 are taught SRE (Sex and Relationships Education)

This is what you might typically see:

  • Enthusiastic, engaged learners
  • Curious children posing questions for research and questioning the views of others
  • Children being given the opportunity to learn about different values and ideas
  • Children sharing their learning with others through displays

This is how we know our pupils are doing well:

  • Lessons are planned based on PSHE skills which are specific for each year group
  • Marking and feedback by teacher and peers
  • Photographic and video evidence
  • Displays of work with classes and around school

This is the impact of our teaching:

  • Children who enjoy PSHE
  • Inquisitive learners
  • Reflective learners
  • Children who are prepared to share what they’ve learnt in a variety of ways
  • Children who are able to gain an insight into the world they live in
