PSHE stands for personal, social, health and economic education. Within this subject, there are three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships, and Living in the Wider World. At Henbury Court, PSHE is taught through ‘Jigsaw’ a scheme of learning, which integrates personal, social, health and economic education with an emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and spiritual development.
Jigsaw’s lessons cover skills such as understanding my position in the class, school and global community. Anti-bullying includes homophobic and cyber-bullying and understanding friendship, family and other relationships. Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world. These lessons support children to help develop their social and emotional well-being, enabling them to engage with life and learning. All members of staff support children in becoming more self-assured, capable and adaptable. The Jigsaw approach is integrated into the curriculum as well as the everyday life of the school in order to develop well-being and provide a firm foundation for academic attainment.
