We use the Jigsaw scheme of work to deliver our PSHRE lessons to our pupils. This scheme of work allows progression throughout the different themes and enables pupils to be taught age appropriate content. All class teachers within our school deliver our PSHE to allow them to have an overall view of their classes needs. During the year, we teach and deliver six topics across each half term. The topics covered can be seen below:

Autumn Spring Summer
Being Me in My World

Dreams and Goals Relationships
Celebrating Differences

Healthy Me

Changing Me


Aside from our Jigsaw and PSHRE lessons, stories are told and songs are sung which are relevant to each key stage. These stories and songs always have a link to the current theme being taught. Furthermore, this allows our pupils to make instant connections with the themes being covered in their Jigsaw sessions.

The content covered during our PSHRE lessons prepares our children to become independent and resilient learners and also allows then to acknowledge the society we live in. Following this, we ensure that the children are exposed to real-life experiences such as working with external companies to broaden their knowledge and understanding of our wider community. At our school, we provide exciting opportunities such as industry days to allow our children to experience the vast amount of jobs and industries available. These days are invaluable as the children are able to learn factual information, as well as conduct a practical activity linked to a specific job role. In the past, these exciting days have provided a great insight into allowing our pupils to think about their life beyond primary school.

In upper Key Stage 2, each academic year, the children have a visit from the Hull nursing team and they deliver content linked to puberty (Year 5) and growing up and relationships (Year 6). This content is delivered in a sensitive manner and all questions are answered appropriately.

Throughout the year, we address key events such as: Road Safety Week, Anti-Bullying Week, Global Enterprise Week, Hello Yellow Day and Children’s Mental Health Day. Often, these key events are covered in every year group from Nursery to Year 6. A variety of cross-curricular lessons are seen and children can often participate in competitions.
