PSHE & RSE
How do we teach PSHE at Buckingham Primary School?
At Buckingham Primary school we follow the Jigsaw scheme of work to support teaching and learning in PSHE. We follow this programme from Nursery through to Year 6. Lessons are taught weekly and follow a clear programme, which are adapted to the needs of the children.
What is PSHE?
PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of children, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
What is RSE?
It is compulsory for primary schools to teach Relationships Education, however, in line with government advice, we also teach Sex education to Year 6 children (which can be opted out by parents). Relationship education includes friendships, families, respectful relationships and being safe online.
What is Jigsaw?
Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Jigsaw is designed on a whole school approach with all year groups working on the same theme (puzzle) at the same time. Each theme starts with an introductory assembly and is supported by a song to reinforce the learning.
