Inspire. Enrich. Achieve.
PSHE teaches us important life skills that will follow us into secondary school and beyond! Then, our trip to Warning Zone helps reinforce these skills in actual situations.
– Esme, Year 6
At St Peter’s the teaching of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially so that they can make good decisions to ensure that they maintain good physical and mental health. It also tackles many moral, cultural and social issues that are part of growing up both nationally and locally within their own community. We link all our teaching in with our Christian ethos and our Christian values. Our aspiration is that we will provide our children with a wide-range of learning opportunities across and beyond our curriculum, in specific lessons, mindfulness sessions, themed days and trips that enrich pupils’ experiences. The teaching of PSHE at St Peter’s allows pupils to learn about rights, responsibilities and their place in the diverse community in which they live on the outskirts of Leicester – an extremely multi-cultural city.
We have chosen to use Jigsaw as our scheme to ensure the teaching of high-quality PSHE within our school. Please see the information and links below for further insight into Jigsaw and our relevant PSHE policies.
