At Aston Lodge Primary School, we follow the Jigsaw scheme of work for delivering high-quality PSHCE (Personal, social, health, citizenship and economic) education. Throughout all Key Stages, we offer the children the chance to participate in weekly circle time sessions in order to raise and discuss local, national and topical issues. The teaching staff weave PSHCE themes throughout their medium-term planning in order for the children to have relevant contexts in which to develop their thinking and make safe and considered choices both in and out of school. Our PSHCE sessions provide a platform for us to foster our children’s SMSC (social, moral, spiritual and cultural) development and to ensure that we are promoting Traditional British Values in all parts of school life.

Although PSHCE is delivered through direct teaching sessions, it also plays a huge part of all aspects of our school community – such as whole school assemblies, visitors in school, our behaviour and reward systems etc. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and in the wider community; developing their self-worth and understanding of how society is organised and governed.
