'Learning and Achieving Together'
Whilst PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education remains a non statutory subject Section 2.5 of the National Curriculum framework document states that:
'All schools should make provision for PSHE drawing on good practice.'
Furthermore, the DFE also published a guidance document which states that the subject
'is an important part of all pupil's education'
going on to note that:
'Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build where appropriate on statutory content already outlined in the National Curriculum.'
At Hobletts Manor Junior School we recognise the importance of PSHE education within our curriculum and the role it plays in equipping our children with the skills to meet the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of adult life. We also recognise how PSHE education can help our children
'connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure to fulfill their academic potential.'
At Hobletts Manor Junior School we use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work to support our teaching and enhance provision, a resource jointly purchased with Hobletts Manor Infants School to ensure continuity of teaching across the schools.
