At The Ridge Junior School, we believe that PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives, in order to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
It supports them in understanding how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It also gives children an understanding of the rights and responsibilities that are part of being a good citizen. The work we carry out in PSHE links directly to our Jigsaw scheme of work which is accredited by the PSHE Association. Topics and themes are repeated from year to year in greater depth, taking account of the pupils’ development.
