PSHE Intent Statement

At Tickenham, we are passionate in ensuring that every child is enabled to do the very best that they can, and more. Children function better and learn more effectively when they are encouraged to have clear, positive goals and values; when they are encouraged to manage their emotions and make responsible choices/decisions; and when they are engaged in setting goals for their own learning, while also pursuing goals they must reach to function well in society.  

Our PSHE curriculum, builds on our vision and our Christian values. 

'Learning for today, inspiring for tomorrow'

We use Jigsaw PSHE; "With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.” 

Whilst we use Jigsaw for planning a comprehensive and structured approach to PSHE as discrete lessons, we also intend for our shared language of 'The Tickenham Way' and our 8 learning gems to make a significant contribution to children's personal and social development. 

PSHE Implementation Statement

Our PSHE curriculum is based on the comprehensive Jigsaw programme including statutory Relationships and Health Education. Jigsaw provides a progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.

Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work, each containing six lessons covering each academic year.

Term 1: Being Me in My World

Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)

Term 3: Dreams and Goals

Term 4: Healthy Me

Term 5: Relationships

Term 6: Changing Me (including Sex and Relationships Education)

Every lesson has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.

PSHE Impact Statement

To fulfil our vision of inspiring a generation, we motivate children to reflect on their social and personal development by participating in a range of activities which are engaging and fun. We inspire children to instinctively utilise skills, knowledge and attitudes acquired during PSHE lessons and everyday school life, encouraging them to take responsibility for their own health and emotional wellbeing thus developing a love of themselves and others, leading to a happy and healthy life.
