PHSE & Citizenship education is an important part of our curriculum and embedded in the life of the school. The Science and Personal, Health and Social education, (PHSE) programmes support this.
The school Uses the Jigsaw scheme of work to deliver much of PSHE & Citizenship curriculum Jigsaw PSHE brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme.
Designed as a whole school approach, Jigsaw provides a comprehensive scheme of learning for Foundation Stage to Year 6.
Jigsaw holds children at its heart and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value who they are and how they fit and contribute to the world.
Jigsaw contributes to the British Values agenda very significantly, both through the direct teaching of information and through the experiential learning children will enjoy.
The 5 strands of the British Values agenda have been mapped across all Year groups.

Sex and Relationships Education
Our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum begins, in an age appropriate way, from Reception onwards. It is a statutory requirement that our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Policy is reviewed annually by both staff and governors. We treat this subject as a joint school/parent responsibility.
Our current RSE policy is in line with the revised DFE guidance which will become mandatory in 2020.
