At Furness, through our teaching of PSHE we aim to ensure that all pupils:


  • Are prepared for life
  • Know and value who they are
  • Understand how they relate to other people in this ever changing world
  • Healthy Eating
  • Understanding the effects of drugs and alcohol
  • Understanding of the physical and emotional changes that will occur through our delivery of RSE



Curriculum Aims:

PSHE aims to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.


At Furness Primary School, our PSHE curriculum is designed to meet the needs of our pupils ensuring our curriculum intentions are met. We do this through;


We use Jigsaw as a whole school approach we selected this because it links to the key aims of the National Curriculum whilst placing a clear emphasis of mindfulness, emotional literacy, social skills and emotional well-being.

Teaching and learning in PSHE covers the following areas:

  • Being me in my world
  • Celebrating Differences
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me


PSHE Jigsaw planning is reflective of our school pedagogical principles of the 6E’s. Children are given a chance to explore the different topics. They are then given an explanation as to why they are exploring the topic.

PSHE across the school:

Children are engaged in weekly assemblies where there is always a moral to which the children are taught and given an opportunity for self-reflection. The assemblies always make links to the PRIDE charter, British Values and the children’s Rights and Responsibilities. They are given certificates and are praised and valued for their effort and work throughout the week. The children are then engaged in a moment of reflection where they are challenged to help support their Growth Mindset.


Within the school we have Place2Be. Place2Be is an important asset as it provides support for Mental and emotional well-being in school for both children and families through various channels, such as: Place2Talk, One to One Counselling, Group work and parent counselling. Place2Be also offer the children the opportunity to ‘self-refer’, thus given the children the ownership of their well-being.
