At Carr Infant School the teaching of Personal, Social Health and Education gives the children the confidence to build skills and knowledge to become healthy, independent and responsible citizens. In PSHE we are giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others. There is a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.



At Carr Infant School PSHE is taught in each class on a weekly basis. In order to deliver the curriculum intent, we use the Jigsaw PSHE scheme.  This is a whole school approach to PSHE using structured, progressive plans.  Each year group, from Nursery to Year Two, work on the same termly topic at an age appropriate level.  Children learn about their place in the community and the world.  They discuss and celebrate how people are different to each other.  Children set goals and think about their aspirations developing their own creativity in a modern world.  Being and keeping healthy, both physically and mentally, are key elements that the children learn about and discuss.  Children learn about friendships and family relationships and also think about how they themselves change and develop over time. 

PSHE is taught through Jigsaw’s six half termly themes with each year group studying the same unit at the same time (at their own level):

Autumn 1: Being Me in My World

Autumn 2: Differences (including anti-bullying)

Spring 1: Dreams and Goals

Spring 2: Healthy Me

Summer 1: Relationships

Summer 2: Changing Me


Wider Curriculum:

Assemblies are linked to PSHE, British Values and SMSC and cover any additional sessions that would benefit the whole school.                                                       

PSHE, BV and SMSC displays throughout school reinforce the PSHE curriculum enabling children to make links.

It also identifies links to British Values, and SMSC and is taught in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and ethos of the school.
