Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
The purpose of the Futura Learning Partnership PSHE intent is to provide a framework for high quality PSHE education across phases which is accessible to all and ensures that each of our pupils will develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work.
The aim is to ensure our pupils understand more about how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as a child and as an adult within the future. It should have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
The aim is for a holistic PSHE learning journey spanning the pupil’s school career, with a progressive, spiral curriculum that addresses real needs in a rapidly changing world. Our curriculum is ambitious for all and strives to address inclusion and disadvantage in its intent and implementation.

PSHE at Chestnut Park
PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.
Through our whole-school approach to PSHE, it is our belief that excellence in these areas will lead to excellence across the curriculum and beyond in later life.
PSHE is taught across the school from Preschool - Year 6 on a weekly basis and as a school, we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme.
Our PSHE curriculum equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.
With an ever changing society, we are able to provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community.
Weaving through the heart of our PSHE teaching, is a commitment to enhancing and promoting our core Heart values; honesty, empathy, appreciation, respect, and trust.
We will support children to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work.
A broader PSHE program through using the Jigsaw program will also cover economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing risk.
