“The things that make me different are the things that make me ME.”

Piglet ― A. A. Milne


At Churchfield, PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally and socially. Through our whole-school approach to PSHE, we believe that outstanding practice in these areas will lead to excellence across the curriculum and beyond in later life. PSHE is taught weekly across the school from Reception up to Year 6 and as a school, we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme. Our PSHE curriculum equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.


With an ever-changing society, Churchfield provides our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and supports them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community. We want our children to get the most of their lives so that they are ready for their adult lives and life in the twenty-first century. Weaving through the heart of our PSHE teaching is a commitment to enhancing and promoting the 4R’s (the core Churchfield values); Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, Reflect). Our whole curriculum is shaped by our school vision – BELONGING (Believe; Equality; Lifelong learning; Ongoing respect; Nurturing; Growing in faith; Independent; Never giving up/perseverance; Gaining new experiences) which aims to provide every person with the necessary skills and experience needed to belong in an evolving world. We want all our pupils to feel they belong, feel valued and feel cared for.




PSHE education continues to play an important role for learners with SEND — imparting the practical skills, understanding and knowledge they need to lead creative and fulfilling lives and enjoy safe and healthy relationships. Developing the communication skills, vocabulary, strategies and confidence to help identify and manage challenges is crucial.


The PSHE coverage will also be embedded outside the designated lessons using informal opportunities for teaching (such as queuing at lunchtime or on the playground). Activities will be practical and, wherever possible, in context. PSHE can also help to embed policies that apply to the whole school, including language, privacy and touch which some pupils may need extra work on.

As part of our work for UNICEF and the School Council we ensure pupils with SEN are an active part of pupil voice and representatives for SEN are included in all steering groups.
