Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship                  BACK

 

It is necessary for children to develop an understanding of the world in which they live, to realise their role in the community, their relationships with others, and to appreciate the views and feelings of other people. They need to understand the work people do and the contribution that they make to society. We try to ensure that pupils understand the importance of caring for the environment, how events in the past have influenced the present and the fact that the future will be affected by today’s actions.

Here, at Dunchurch Boughton Cof E Junior School, we value PSHE as a key way to support children’s development as human beings, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice and to equip them for life and learning. 

 

At Dunchurch Junior school, we teach Personal, Social, Health Education as a whole-school approach. We include the statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme. 

 

To ensure progression and a spiral curriculum, we use Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, as our chosen teaching and learning programme and tailor it to children’s needs. We allocate 60 minutes to PSHE each week in order to teach the PSHE knowledge and skills in a developmental and age-appropriate way. These explicit lessons are reinforced and enhanced in many ways:  

Assemblies and collective worship, praise and reward system, Learning Charter, through relationships child to child, adult to child and adult to adult across the school.

 

The Jigsaw scheme and teaching, fits well with our school vision and school values: kindness, peace, patience, thankfulness, forgiveness, generosity and honesty.

 

We aim to ‘live’ what is learnt and apply it to everyday situations in the school community.

Protective Behaviours

We use the Warwickshire "Taking Care" scheme with our children.  We teach them about their early warning signs and help them to make a network of people that they trust and can talk to.
