PSHE at St George's School

At St George’s School, we are pleased to be teaching PSHE using Jigsaw. Jigsaw is a child-centred and mindful approach to PSHE. It is a progressive scheme of learning which embeds personal, social, health and economic education with a main focus on emotional literacy and mental health.

The aim of our PSHE lessons is to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this complex, changing world.

Jigsaw PSHE also helps to promote fundamental British values, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

British Values

At St George’s School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families, and the wider school community.  We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.

The Department for Education states that there is a need: 

“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.

 

The Department for Education defines British Values as follows: 

 

  1. Democracy
  2. The rule of law
  3. Individual liberty
  4. Mutual respect
  5. Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

 

St George’s reflects British values in everything that we do. 

We actively promote British values in the following ways:

 

Democracy

  • The principle of democracy is explored in the curriculum as well as during assemblies and special days.
  • All children are encouraged to debate topics of interest and express their views.
  • School council has a strong voice and its members are elected democratically in class.
  • Pupils have their voices heard through the School Council.
  • Pupils are at the heart of many initiatives including choosing equipment for the playground and ideas to raise money. A successful ‘Snow Ball’ idea was planned by the School Council children to raise money.
  • The governing body and staff reflect the people and community of the school. Senior leaders and subject leaders regularly talk to pupils about their views on school life.
  • Class votes to make key decisions.
