Our Relationships and PSHE curriculum at Stockbridge is designed to help our pupils build the lifelong skills they need to be happy and successful in life. It focuses on helping our learners to understand the importance of both good physical health and mental wellbeing as well as building healthy relationships with others. It gives them the knowledge needed to help them make informed decisions and contribute meaningfully to society. It aims to develop tolerance and understanding alongside our school values of being resilient, respectful, resourceful, collaborative, proud and responsible.
The main content of our RPSHE curriculum is taken from Jigsaw, a comprehensive scheme which has a whole approach and focuses on a different aspect each term (see tab). It has soft toy characters (jigsaw pieces) which scenarios are built around and the children use to help share their thinking. It also encourages time for reflecting and quiet thinking using a chime bar to reinforce.
However, our RPSHE curriculum is not simply taught through discrete lessons but encompassed in all that we do and children are encouraged to think about what they have learnt through jigsaw within all areas of their learning. Opportunities are provided to allow children to practise skills and further develop their understanding throughout the curriculum.
