At Salisbury Primary School we use The Jigsaw Programme to teach PSHE, and this offers us a comprehensive, carefully thought-through scheme of work that brings consistency and progression to our children’s learning in this vital curriculum area.


Here, at Salisbury Primary School we value PSHE as one way to support children’s development as human beings, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice, and to equip them for life and learning.

We include the statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme.  Parents are invited into school in the spring term each year to view the RSHE lessons and material that will be taught in the summer term.


PSHE at Salisbury Primary School aims to develop:


  • Coping Skills (resilience and mental health)
  • Achievement and Success (how we learn and develop)
  • Confidence (speaking up and out, taking on challenges)
  • Positive Relationships (friendships, home relationships, being safe both online and offline), encouraging pupils to consider how to build positive relationships, as well as building empathy and dealing with conflict
  • Support (citizenship, helping others)
