PSHE and SMSC
At Paddox we intend to provide children with the knowledge, skills and understanding in order to prepare them for life in today’s diverse society. Pupils are taught PSHE using ‘Jigsaw’ which has an intent to improve children’s capacity to learn, their resilience and enhance emotional well-being and mental health; therefore, improving their life chances.
This cohesive vision helps children to understand and value how they fit and contribute to the world. Jigsaw also includes mindfulness, allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus - therefore impacting their progress across the curriculum.
