PSHE at Wootton Lower School

At Wootton Lower School, the skills taught in PSHE enable pupils to develop the skills they need to flourish in the wider curriculum and life as a whole. PHSE helps pupils to understand their own personal value, and how as individuals, they fit into and contribute to the world around them. This subject helps to develop emotional literacy, build resilience and supports mental and physical wellbeing, in turn supporting emotional awareness, concentration and focus.  In PSHE all children have the opportunity to share their own ideas, experiences, thoughts and feelings in a calm and supportive environment. PSHE is taught through the 'Jigsaw' scheme of work in weekly 'lessons' with the class teacher. There are 6 units over the year, each of which is launched in an assembly at the beginning of term.
