As you may be aware, last year the Department for Education announced that all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education as part of their Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) curriculum. (You can find further government guidance relating to this here). These changes were due to come into effect from September 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures, the government decided to extend this deadline to April 2021. From this new date all schools will be required to comply with these requirements.
At Broughton Community Schools, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education. To do this, we use the PSHE scheme, Jigsaw, which gives our children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
As a school community, we are committed to working in partnership with parents and had planned to run some parent workshops during the Spring term to share the scheme with you. However, due to further school closures these were unable to go ahead. Under the current circumstances, we are still unable to invite parents into school to take part in these workshops, but we still want to engage with you on this important aspect of your child’s education.
Below are some key document we wish to share with parents as part of the consultation process. Once you have read these documents, we invite you to complete the short online survey - the link for which can be found below.
