Our PSHE curriculum works in conjunction with our school’s safeguarding policy: we have a duty of care to keep our children safe, both in school, in our diverse, multi-cultural community and on a global scale. Our curriculum provides early education for some of the issues and challenges our children may face in the community. Personal, Social and Health education has a vital impact on a young person’s life and the impact it has on the whole child. We want to equip Sneinton pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves safe, prepare them socially, emotionally and spiritually for life in Modern Britain, and support them to be ready to leave primary school with the skills they will need to succeed in today’s society.
Our curriculum approach and use of Jigsaw PSHE, supports children in becoming emotionally literate and confident in sharing their thoughts and feelings; allows them to develop both resilience and tolerance; build positive, respectful relationships with others, and nurtures understanding for both positive and physical mental health. We also promote the use of mindfulness to support children with their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
