At Hayes Primary School, we aim to develop all aspects of our children's learning. One way that we ensure the development of our children as well rounded individuals is through our PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, and Economic) curriculum.

We take PSHE very seriously as we believe that if a child is not feeling whole in themselves as a person it is impossible to access the full benefits of an academic education. The intention for the teaching of PSHE is to provide our pupils with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future - developing the whole child so that they can achieve their personal best. These specific skills and attributes will provide pupils the lifelong tools they need to stay healthy, to be safe and to also prepare them for life and work in modern day Britain and beyond.

We use the Jigsaw PSHE / Health and Well-being curriculum. This provides a detailed and comprehensive scheme of learning for ages 3-16. Jigsaw is a progressive scheme of work, aiming to prepare children for life, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

Effective RSE can make a significant contribution to the development of personal skills needed by pupils if they are to establish and maintain relationships. It also enables children and young people to make responsible and informed decisions about their health and well-being. 

More information about the content and organisation of RSE taught outside of science in the National Curriculum can be found in PSHE policy, which can be found in TSPT Statutory Policies section of this website.
