Cabot Primary – PSHE Curriculum Intent

We are committed to creating a positive, safe and nurturing environment, where all members of the school and wider community will be respected and valued.

At Cabot Primary School, PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child”. Through our whole-school approach to PSHE, it is our belief that excellence in these areas will lead to excellence across the curriculum. We follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme. Our inclusive 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, we are able to provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community. Working in partnership is key.

We value inclusion and our whole curriculum is shaped by our school vision, which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability, additional needs, and to flourish to become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be. 

We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. 

Jigsaw PSHE directs our aim on developing the “whole child” through a spiral curriculum approach to developing knowledge, skills and understanding in the areas of; 

 Being Me in My World
  Celebrating Difference
 Dreams and Goals
 Healthy Me
 Changing Me
