PSHE at Easton
- At Easton CE Academy we value PSHE as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum.
- PSHE is rooted in our school moto: Being different, belonging together.
- PSHE is particularly important because it teaches our pupils many tools to stay safe physically, mentally and online; awareness of emotions and how we act ; healthy habits and how to build and maintain positive relationships. It allows us to discuss without judgement and work together to solve problems.
Jigsaw is used to teach our PSHE curriculum. PSHE is taught weekly by the class teacher. The scheme is divided into 6 strands (Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Changing Me and Relationships), taught progressively across their time in school.
In addition to the weekly PSHE teaching, we also have weekly PSHE assemblies (Community Time) which are planned by our PSHE lead. Throughout the year we take part in numerous theme weeks including: Anti-Bullying Week and Internet Safety week.
Thorughout our school buildings you will see self regulation areas set up. These build on our work around zones of regulation where each colour represents a different group of emotions. We teach how to recognise emotions within ourselves and within others and how they can affect our behaviours. We aim for all children to be within the ‘green zone’ but understand that sometimes they may need support or time to find their way back there.
