Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E.) is an integral part of the curriculum at Dubmire, Children’s academic progress can be hampered by their emotional needs, poorly developed social skills and mental health issues. Therefore, P.S.H.E. at Dubmire gives the context needed to build skills, attitudes, self-esteem, resilience and confidence.
We follow the Jigsaw: The Mindful Approach to P.S.H.E scheme of work. The scheme allows staff to tailor lessons to the needs of the children and ensures progression across the year groups. There are 6 units of work, called Puzzles, which support the children’s development in different areas. These ‘Puzzles’ are called: Being Me in My World; Celebrating Difference; Dreams and Goals; Healthy Me; Relationships and Changing Me.
At Dubmire, we believe that if children’s personal development is supported in a structured and developmentally appropriate way, the pupils’ capacity to learn will be improved, but most importantly their life chances will also improve.
