PSHE & Values

Learning a language makes our minds stronger and more flexible. Using it gives us an entirely new experience of the world.

At St Weonards Academy, we aim to provide young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly. As a school we believe the ethos of the school should be built on a foundation of core values, which are; honesty, respect, responsibility, friendship, perseverance and courage as well as the key British values. These will permeate the whole curriculum but will be especially heavily featured in PSHE and RE lessons, and school assemblies.

We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through our pupil council, eco council, fundraising events, supporting both local and national charities and involvement in community activities.
Values education is embedded through-out our school community and the themes for our assemblies. A key part of our plan for Values education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain. This includes the teaching of the British Values:
  • The Rule of Law 

  • Democracy 

  • Individual Liberty 

  • Mutual Respect 

  • Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs 

Our Jigsaw PSHE curriculum is designed as a whole school approach from Nursery to Year 6, with all year groups working on the same theme or ‘puzzle’ at the same time.

The six puzzle pieces or themes are:

Autumn 1: Being Me In My World

Autumn 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)

Spring 1: Dreams and Goals

Spring 2: Healthy Me

Summer 1: Relationships

Summer 2: Changing Me

Through Jigsaw, we are helping children to learn well and be healthy, happy individuals, equipped to cope with the world.
