Learning to be the best we can be.


PSHE - Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education


At Lord Street Primary School, personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is at the core of what we do. We want to equip all our pupil’s with the knowledge and skills to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible adults, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain. Through our whole-school approach to PSHE, it provides our pupils with a relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.

We also have a discrete PSHE curriculum, that runs through all of our curriculum areas.  We provide our pupils with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.



Jigsaw covers all areas of PSHE for the primary phase including statutory Relationships and Health Education. The table below gives the learning theme of each of the six Puzzles (units) and these are taught across the school; the learning deepens and broadens every year.

It is important for pupils to have opportunities to reflect on their learning and assessment also increases pupils’ motivation and improves learning as their raised awareness of their development illustrates the value of their learning. It is important for teachers to feel confident that learning has taken place, to be able to demonstrate progress, and to identify future learning needs. It also allows the leadership team, parents, governors and school inspectors to see the impact that PSHE education is having for pupils and for whole school outcomes. 

 Personal reflection in PSHE education lessons is essential, so ensuring pupils have time and space within the lessons to reflect on this, either privately or through discussion, is a vital part of the assessment process.
