Why do we teach what we teach?
Our PSHE RSE curriculum at Giles Junior school is centred around ‘mindfulness’, safety and values. To deliver this curriculum we use a resource called ‘Jigsaw PSHE’.

Through this learning it is our intention to prepare children for life outside of school, helping them to understand and value who they truly are and to know how they relate to other people in our ever-changing world, underpinned by a strong foundation of our 7 Habits and British Values.
