What is PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Economic) Education?

PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives.

As part of a whole school approach, Woodchester Endowed CofE Primary School uses the Jigsaw PSHE scheme which aims to develop the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.


Jigsaw PSHE?

Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Years Reception through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. The scheme incorporates SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) and British Values. The RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) content has been adapted to fit in within our school’s policy.
