Teaching Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) at Buckingham Park Primary School

What is PSHE?

PSHE addresses the real life issues affecting children, their families and communities.  All schools must, by law, provide ‘a broad and balanced curriculum’  that ‘prepares young people for the opportunities and responsibilities of adult life’.  At Buckingham Park Primary PSHE is recognised as an integral aspect of the curriculum.

Why is PSHE so important?

PSHE education helps all children to achieve their full potential.  PSHE promotes independence and responsibility, develops children’s personal and social skills, their self-esteem and contributes to the health, well-being and safety of all our pupils.  PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

How is PSHE taught at Buckingham Park Primary School?

At Buckingham Park Primary School, we are proud to teach Jigsaw PSHE. Jigsaw aims to deliver the themes of PSHE in a mindful and child-centred way. It is an original and comprehensive scheme of learning which integrates personal, social, health and economic education with emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and SMSC, especially spiritual development. 


What is taught in PSHE?

Every year group from Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to Year 6 teaches PSHE focusing on 6 main themes, 'Being me in my world', 'Celebrating Difference', 'Dreams and Goals', 'Healthy Me', 'Relationships' and 'Changing me'. Whilst the same themes run throughout the school, each year group has differientiated acitivities based on the age of the children. 

Overviews of lessons can be found below for each year group.
