Welcome to Hylton Castle Primary School


PSHE Statement of Intent

At Hylton Castle Primary School our PSHE curriculum aims to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. We believe our PSHE programme has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils and enables children to manage life’s challenges and make the most of life’s opportunities.  We encourage children to ‘Dream, Believe and Achieve’ and trust our PSHE curriculum affords the children the skills and confidence to do this, alongside other opportunities and experiences. The teaching of SMSC and Fundamental British values is weaved into the full school day and curriculum and lived in Hylton Castle’s ethos and values system.


  • In EYFS pupils have access to PSHE opportunities through direct teaching of skills and application in the continuous provision both indoors and outdoors– making relationships, managing feelings, key worker activities, circle time, story time etc
  • Discrete lesson to deliver PSHE will take place weekly Y1-6 following the Jigsaw Scheme of work.
  • Kidsafe trained staff to deliver work from Rec – Y6
  • Work recorded in class books.
  • We use Jigsaw 3-11 which offers a comprehensive Programme for Primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
  • With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
