Catshill Curriculum Overviews.

Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) and Life Skills (PSHE) at Catshill Middle School.

‘We want all children to grow up healthy, happy, safe, and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. That is why, from September 2020, all primary age children will be taught Relationships and Health Education.’ Department for Education 2020

At Catshill Middle School we follow the Jigsaw curriculum. This is a scheme of work that has been created by a team of teachers and health professionals that assures all of the statutory requirements of the RSHE curriculum are taught to your children.

What is Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, and how does it work?

Jigsaw is a whole-school approach and embodies a positive philosophy alongside creative teaching and learning activities. This approach supports pupils to become compassionate and empathetic members of the community.

The Jigsaw curriculum is written by teachers and includes all of the statutory requirements for Relationships and Health Education, and Sex Education is also included in the Changing Me Puzzle (unit).

We have provided further information for our parents/carers below so that you can read what the statutory requirements are for the curriculum and how we teach them to all of the children within our school.

We also offer opportunities during the school year to share and discuss these lessons. If you would like to discuss any of the curriculum further please contact Mrs McCrory.

I hope you find this information useful and that it reassures you as to why it is important to teach children RSHE and Life Skills at Catshill Middle School.
