PSHE at Cotsford
The Personal, Social, Health and Economic education programme of study is organised into three core themes:
- health and wellbeing
- living in the wider world (covering economic wellbeing and careers)
These themes include various topics related to physical and mental health, alcohol and drug education, relationships (and sex) education, economic wellbeing and careers. Often our work in PSHE is cross curricula and covers British Values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education and also links into our Rights Respecting School agenda.
We, at Cotsford Primary, teach PSHE through Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE. It promotes positive mindsets and allows children to expand their knowledge of respecting their rights. Each class has it’s own character in the shape of a jigsaw piece. These are on display in each class and are used regularly to support children with decisions and their understanding.

RSE at Cotsford
We include the statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme. To ensure progression and a spiral curriculum, we use Jigsaw. The mapping document: Jigsaw 3-11 and statutory Relationships and Health Education, which can be found within our policy, shows exactly how Jigsaw and therefore our school, meets the statutory Relationships and Health Education requirements. It also states our position on Sex Education. Additional information can be found by clicking on the links below.
