The Winchcombe School

Improving As One


What is our Philosophy?

At The Winchcombe School it is our ambition to ensure that all children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

In our PSHE curriculum, we aim to equip children with a secure understanding of risk and the ability to make safe and informed decisions, to be healthy and to have aspirations for their futures. Children are empowered to learn now and improve their life chances later as we help them to develop personal awareness, tolerance and belief. This enables them to observe their own emotions and feelings, regulate them and make conscious decisions about their learning, behaviour and lives.

What is taught?

At The Winchcombe School our PHSE curriculum is taught through the Jigsaw scheme. Jigsaw is a whole school approach which enables children to learn about the same theme throughout the year whilst celebrating the cultural diversity of the Winchcombe Community.

Autumn Term 1:        Being Me in My World

Autumn Term 2:       Celebrating Difference

Spring Term 1:           Dreams and Goals

Spring Term 2:          Healthy Me

Summer Term 1:       Relationships

Through our PSHE teaching we connect PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development. It is strongly underpinned by our school values and is threaded through subjects.
