Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
At St John’s Primary School the teaching of PSHE plays an important role in our appreciation of our own abilities and health as well as the development of all children into healthy global citizens. We believe it is important that children are encouraged to challenge themselves, and develop a healthy life-style. Alongside this, our pupils will acquire a range of skills, which will allow them to flourish in other areas of the curriculum or future roles within the wider community.
Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation.
Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.
