The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximize the outcomes for every child. We aim to help children understand how they are developing personally, socially and to support them by equipping them with the skills to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with the opportunities for them to learn about our rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
We follow a scheme of work called Jigsaw and Yasmine and Tom to deliver the national curriculum. Jigsaw and Yasmine and Tom offer a comprehensive, carefully thought out scheme of work, which brings consistency and progression to our children’s learning.
Implementation: Our whole curriculum aims to enable children, regardless of background, ability or additional needs to flourish and become the best version of themselves, that they can be.

PSHE lessons will give children an opportunity to discuss how they are feeling and equip them with tools on how to cope in many different situations. This will ensure our children are ready to grow up in an ever changing world. Children at The Kennet Federation are part of a multicultural community and will benefit from learning about themselves, each other and the world we live in.
We believe we are offering a curriculum that meets the needs of our pupils. PSHE plays a vital part of primary education. The format of the lessons will be mainly discussion led with time to reflect. Children will be encouraged to be open minded and listen to other views and ideas. Children will be able to explore in a safe place free from judgement.
