At Laddingford we follow the Jigsaw scheme for PSHE.
Over the past few years as the time pressures on the curriculum have increased, at times the quality of PSHE education has decreased. At Laddingford we believe that high quality PSHE teaching is fundamental to children's holistic development and therefore should be given the time and attention it deserves.
Jigsaw is a fantastic resource which supports teachers in delivering an engaging and relevant personal, social and health education curriculum to our children. In this section you will find an overview of the Jigsaw approach, individual year group curriculum overviews and two very useful guides for parents and carers.
Mixed Year Group Teaching
As we have mixed year group classes, we follow each year group in turn, although at times, especially in Pippin we might pull resources and activities from across the three year groups at the same time to ensure age appropriate delivery.
This does not apply for the 'Changing Me' unit, for which children will be separated into their individual year groups.
Sex and Relationships Education
We have a statutory duty to teach Sex and Relationships Education (SRE), this is adressed through the 'Relationships' unit in term 5 and the 'Changing Me' unit in term 6. Please have a look at the SRE parent information leaflet from more specific information.
