PHSE and RHSE at Hemington Primary School     

PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. RSHE stands for Relationships, Sex and Health education.


At Hemington Primary School, we seek to equip our children with the skills and attributes to thrive in life and to make a positive contribution to society. Our focus is for every child to become a healthy, independent and responsible member of society.


Our aim is to empower pupils through PSHE lessons and assemblies giving them opportunities to develop confidence and gain an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our school, community and the wider world. 

Jigsaw PSHE The Mindful approach to PSHE and Health and Well-being

We use the Jigsaw PSHE scheme which covers six key areas of learning:

  • Identity and self esteem
  • Equality and diversity
  • Being ambitious
  • Being healthy
  • Good relationships
  • Changing me.

We teach the core British values through our Jigsaw scheme covering:

  • democracy;
  • the rule of law;
  • individual liberty;
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

The scheme also includes social and emotional aspects of learning, relationships and health education and supports our school values and the development of positive learning behaviours.

Our overview for PSHE ensures that PSHE knowledge and skills are built upon progressively as children move through the school.

Promoting good mental health is an important part of PSHE. In class and assemblies, we help children understand the importance of looking after our own mental health and supporting others.
