Curriculum Overview

PSHE Curriculum at Minet Junior School

All pupils are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum regardless of race, gender, religion or ability.

The DfE specified as part of its National Curriculum guidance that ‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice’. The review also detailed:


“PSHE remains an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. We believe that all schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and have outlined this expectation in the introduction to the new National Curriculum” (Written Ministerial Statement: Review of Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, March 2013).


PSHE is a non-statutory subject within the National Curriculum. However, here at Minet Junior School we are committed to the development of the whole child and as a consequence we place Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at the heart of all that we do. We recognise that schools support pupils to develop in many diverse aspects of life, and the responsibility of preparing pupils for their adult lives is one that Minet Junior School takes pride in, and assumes with integrity and purpose.




We have developed our own PSHE curriculum to reflect the needs of our community, based upon the structures of Jigsaw PSHE resources and supplemented as needed with high-quality resources from other sources to allow themes to be visited in greater detail and depth each year.


Please Note: Topics may be changed according to circumstances within classes during the year.
