PSHE and Wellbeing


To provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community.


Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.


In our school we choose to deliver Personal, Social, Health Education using Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE.


In our school we choose to deliver Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) as a whole school approach using Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE. We include the statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) within our whole-school PSHE Programme.


Jigsaw PSHE will support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enable pupils to:

  • Have a sense of purpose
  • Value self and others
  • Form relationships
  • Make and act on informed decisions
  • Communicate effectively
  • Work with others
  • Respond to challenge
  • Be an active partner in their own learning
  • Be active citizens within the local community
  • Explore issues related to living in a democratic society
  • Become healthy and fulfilled individuals


Jigsaw covers all areas of PSHE for the primary phase, as the table below shows:

 It's Cool to be Kind week 2021

Anti-Bullying Week took place from 15th to 19th November this year.  

The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This is one of the reasons that ‘One Kind Word’ was been chosen as the theme of Anti-Bullying Week. At Broughton Community Schools we re-branded the week 'It's Cool to be Kind'.  In school we marked the week by wearing odd socks, taking part in live lessons about bullying and we encouraged the pupils to carry out a random act of kindness at home.  Here are a few of the photos to show how much fun we all had thinking of others and being kind to each other!
