Reydon Primary School


Personal, Social & Health Education

Curriculum Intent

Reydon School is committed to providing a high quality educational experience for all pupils. At Reydon Primary School, the PSHE programme of study brings together citizenship with personal well-being, while promoting a British values based education. It is intended to support the school in developing a cohesive whole-school approach to personal, social, health and economic well-being (PSHE). 

At Reydon Primary School: 

Although PSHE is a non- statuatory subject, at Reydon Primary School we feel it is integral that children are exposed to PSHE in both discrete and cross-curricular learning. 

This curriculum provides a context for the school to fulfil our responsibilities to: 

• Promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of pupils.

• Provide sex and relationships education (RSE).

• Promote British values.

• Provide a safe place for discussion of current, relevant social issues.

• Protect our children from radicalisation. 

Curriculum Implementation


This year, we have introduced a whole school PSHE scheme called Jigsaw. Jigsaw combines PSHE, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development. 

Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for the children. 

Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

Curriculum Impact

Assessment criteria has been developed by using the Jigsaw curriculum,  in order to assess and cover the curriculum accurately. This data is analysed and any gaps that are present are quickly addressed. 

Pupil voice is used in forming the curriculum, and we are currently looking at extending the children's PSHE vocabulary. This was based on pupil surveys undertaken at the beginning of the year. 

We have many areas of PSHE that occur in our school regularly. These include (but are not limited to): school trips, sports tournaments, PSHE lessons, exposing children to a wide variety of literature and asking them to see things from different perspectives, Open the Book Assemblies, various classroom visitors, Year 6 attending Crucial Crew, our School Council, our Road Safety Officers, our Learning Ambassadors and our newly formed Eco Committee. We are confident our children are developing their PSHE skills both in and out of lessons at every possible opportunity.
