PSHE including RSE at Stocksbridge Junior School
At Stocksbridge Junior School, we have recently begun the ‘Jigsaw’ approach to teaching PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education), which is a teaching and learning programme that also includes RSE (Relationships Education and Sex Education). ‘Jigsaw’ also has a strong focus on emotional and mental health and wellbeing.
Relationships and Health Education is now compulsory in all primary schools in England. For primary aged children this includes curriculum content under two headings (DfE 2019):
|Relationships education||Health education|
Families and people who care for me
Internet safety and harms
Physical health and fitness
Drugs, alcohol and tobacco
Health and prevention
Basic first aid
Changing adolescent body
At Stocksbridge Junior School, Sex Education is taught at an age-appropriate level during the ‘Changing Me’ unit at the end of each school year. For further information regarding the school’s teaching of Sex Education, please see the policy in the documents below, as well as the planning overviews.
