The Lyppard Grange Primary School Empowering children to be secure, engaged and equipped for life.




Being a PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) learner at Lyppard Grange Primary School is about being part of a wider world community. At its core, we aim for our learners to build solid relationships with their peers and the adults around them so they feel happy, safe and secure.


It is about equipping our pupils with the skills and knowledge needed for them to be able to tackle any challenges that come their way and become confident and compassionate individuals; to navigate friendships, relationships, the online world, growing up and knowing how to keep themselves healthy and safe.


We aim for our learners to be aspirational in their dreams and goals, celebrate differences and be proud of who they are. We achieve this by fostering a community of compassion, mutual respect and building social skills.




At Lyppard Grange Primary School, the PSHE curriculum aims to equip children with the skills they need to understand their world and the world around them.


It aims to keep equip children with the PSHE knowledge as well as develop their social and emotional skills.


Weaved throughout our curriculum are the key ideas of belonging, mindfulness, building relationships, keeping healthy, a knowledge of their world and the wider world, having dreams and setting goals, celebrating diversity and awareness of self.


We aim to support and guide children on their PSHE journey by giving them the tools that they need to keep themselves safe, empathise with others, welcome change and be confident in themselves.





Using Jigsaw to deliver our PSHE lessons, we learn together as a whole school. At the beginning of each half term, we are introduced to the new Jigsaw piece together in a whole school assembly.


Every year group is familiar with their Jigsaw piece and Jerrie cat, who enable our children to contribute their opinions during class activities in a safe environment.


The Jigsaw pieces that are taught across the year from EYFS to Year 6 are:


  • Being Me in my World

  • Celebrating Differences

  • Dreams and Goals

  • Healthy Me

  • Relationships

  • Changing Me


During each lesson, children build on their teamwork and communication skills by taking part in class “Connect Us” games. We then focus our minds during “Calm Me” time by adopting mindfulness, breathing and calming techniques.


Our lessons comprise of a mixture of independent, whole class, group and paired work. Some activities require written responses, other allow creative outcomes such as presentations, debates or role plays.


Children learn PSHE knowledge related to the Jigsaw pieces as well as developing their social, emotional and literacy skills.


At the end of each unit, children have time to evaluate their learning across the whole piece in a “my reflections” task. During this time, children can draw a picture, discuss how their current learning has built on learning in previous year groups, write a short reflection and consider how their learning will be built on in the future in an age-appropriate manner. RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) is also taught through Jigsaw across the year.
