At JHN, we recognise that personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE) enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. By the time a child leaves JHN, they should: have a high sense of well-being and their own personal development; be equipped with emotional and social skills to deal with challenges, be resilient in the face of setbacks; and to find their voice to communicate who they are and what they believe.
At JHN, we use the ‘Jigsaw’ PSHCE scheme of learning alongside other cross curricular activities to:
- Help children develop their personal skills; to develop lively, enquiring minds with strong skills of communication so they can express themselves.
- Help children to develop their social skills; to appreciate and be concerned about their relationships, environment and understand the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
- Help children to develop their physical and mental health; to achieve self-discipline, resilience and an understanding of physical and mental fitness, so that they can reach the highest standards of which they are capable.
- Help children to develop their understanding of citizenship, including British values such as democracy, and what it means to contribute and be a responsible member of British society and our wider global society.
