Relationships and Sex Education

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

It contains several areas: Emotional Health and Well-Being, Healthy Lifestyles, Relationships and Sex-Education, Drug Education, Staying Safe and Citizenship including British Values.

Much of the RSE/ PSCE curriculum is taught through the Jigsaw programme which is a comprehensive whole school approach to promoting the social and emotional skills that underpin successful learning, positive behaviour and emotional health and well-being.  The curriculum is also covered in other areas such as science, PE, Literacy etc.

Jigsaw is organised into these six areas of learning, which are repeated each year so that the children build up their knowledge and skills.
