Curriculum Statement of Intent for PSHE

At Hendal Primary School the intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially. It will give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

PSHE 2021

We are excited to launch our new PSHE scheme of work called Jigsaw in September 2021.

Jigsaw is a whole school approach which develops children’s Mindfulness and Emotional Literacy skills.

Please see the Jigsaw page of the website for more information. You can also access the Jigsaw policy which includes PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education.


Our PSHE offer for children at Hendal Primary School is carefully planned to incorporate the school curriculum drivers. We are proud of the personalised curriculum and opportunities that we provide to the children in our care and through teacher assessments can see the positive impact it has on all children.
