As a school we have implemented a new Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) policy and curriculum. We believe that pupils need appropriate knowledge to enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships in their future lives. These subjects support pupils to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help and to know where they can access help if they need it. Please take a look at the Relationships and Sex Education Policy on our school website and tell us what you think:

It is a statutory requirement to consult with parents about the policy, so please send any comments or questions to: (by 17.12.20)

The relationships, sex and health curriculum will be delivered as part of our PSHE curriculum. This is delivered through the Jigsaw scheme of work which has six units called ‘Puzzles’ and each unit has six lessons called ‘Pieces’. The idea is that every year group teaches the same Puzzle at the same time as the underlying themes are the same, however the lesson content in each year group will be age appropriate. Each unit of work is introduced through a launch assembly and a song which pull out the broad themes that all of the children will be learning about.

Here is an overview of each Puzzle:

Being Me In My World:

Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community as well as devising Learning Charters.

Celebrating Difference:

Includes anti-bullying and diversity work.

Dreams and Goals:

Includes goal-setting, aspirations for yourself and the world and working together.

Healthy Me:

Includes drugs and alcohol education, self-esteem and confidence as well as healthy lifestyle choices.


Includes understanding friendship, family and other relationships, conflict resolution and communication skills.

Changing Me:

This puzzle includes sex and relationships education in the context of coping positively with change. (includes age-appropriate sex education)
