We are partnered with Jigsaw Education to provide a high quality personal, social and health education at Anson Primary School. The intention of our partnership is to ensure that we deliver a high quality education that will steer our children to be happy, confident and develop key skills for the whole lives.
At Anson we will
Teach the skills, language and strategies to enable the children to live healthy, safe, fulfilling responsible and balanced lives.
Create opportunities to develop positive personal attributes such as resilience, self-confidence, aspiration, independence, collaboration, and risk taking in line with our learning behaviours.
Create opportunities to teach accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge to enable them to appreciate what it means to be a positive, tolerant member of a diverse multicultural society.
Plan opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, our own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
Help and guide children into becoming responsible members of society.
Understand their role in the school community and wider society.
Develop an understanding of individual choice and responsibilities.
Acknowledge and respect others thoughts and opinions.
Every class is a part of the jigsaw. This approach means that connections are made across the school, with the whole school focusing on the same unit at the same time. This also ensures we can support parents in our work and help them to answer questions from their children.
We focus on six key areas:
1: Being Me
2: Celebrating Differences
3: Dreams and Goals
4: Healthy Me
6: Changing Me
High quality lesson plans are adapted by the teachers to fit the needs of the children depending on their experiences in the lesson and the direction of the content.
PSHE is celebrated in assemblies with certificates and also by encouraging pupil voice across the school and work in the local community.
This also helps us address Relationships Education.
The Department for Education introduced compulsory Relationships Education for Primary pupils from September 2020.
It is our aim at Anson Primary School to support our pupils to be happy, healthy and safe. We aim to provide our children with the information needed to develop healthy, nurturing relationships through their childhood and into adult life.
Relationships Education at Anson Primary School will start with family and friends, how to treat each other with kindness, and recognising the difference between online and offline friendships. We will support our pupils to develop respect for others and for difference.
We have developed a Curriculum Overview for each Year Group in partnership with Jigsaw Education and this will ensure that Relationships Education is embedded into our PSHE Curriculum. Many elements already fall into the Health Education built into the Science National Curriculum.
An overview of the topics for each year group is available below. In line with the guidance from the Department of Education all children should take part in Relationships Education and there is no automatic entitlement for parents to withdraw their child from the content. Any withdrawal (which may only apply in Year 6) must be requested through the Headteacher.
Please take a look at the parent guides and if you have any questions contact your child's class teacher or the Headteacher.
You can download the knowledge organisers below to see what each year group will study in more detail.
