At Park View, PSHE is at the heart of our school ethos and vision as it is a crucial element of our pupil’s educationPSHE helps our children to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and ‘global citizens’.    

Our carefully selected curriculum content is tailored to meet the needs of our pupils so that they leave Park View with the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. We aim to provide a universal whole-school curriculum that teaches social skills, grows emotional literacy, encourages self-awareness and an understanding of mental health and nurtures children’s positive relationships with themselves and others. 

Integrating this personal and social development work into a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health Education (Health and Well-being) curriculum gives the relevant context to build skills, attitudes, self-esteem, resilience and confidence. 

Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, is the tool that we use to support elements of planning and delivery as it brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development. Lessons and resources have been tailored to meet the needs of the children and community that we serve and are bespoke to Park View. 

As part of the Jigsaw approach, whole-school opportunities are maximised upon to embed this learning and are integral to the delivery and success of the curriculum e.g. assemblies, picture news, weekly celebrations, floor books and external visitors all reinforce the curriculum work and enhance the positive ethos of the whole school community. 

PHSE is taught discreetly, twice a week. Assemblies take place at the beginning of the week as a ‘launch’ of the theme for that week with Friday being a full school celebration assembly.
