PSHE / SMSC
PSHE Intent Statement.
The PSHE curriculum at Creswell Junior School, enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We use the programme Jigsaw to deliver our PSHE curriculum, taking a mindful approach to PSHE. As a staff we aim to provide our children with opportunities and learning experiences to set them up for life, both in school and the wider community.
By allowing them to build on specific skills as they journey through school, children are able to understand how they are developing personally and socially. Using the chosen programme of study, we aim to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up in today’s modern world. Therefore, giving our children the knowledge and confidence to go into the wider world, understanding their rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.
Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to both school life and in the wider community.
Good relationships are fundamental to a happy and healthy life. Therefore, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is taught to embed quality understanding of relationships, emotions, looking after ourselves, different families, sex, sexuality and sexual health. It involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes. RSE has a key part to play in the personal, social, moral and spiritual development of young people.
