At Somerford Primary School we follow the County recommended “Jigsaw” programme for delivering PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education).


The aim of this programme is to provide children with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives, reaching their potential and demonstrating respect forthose around them.  Through a wide range of learning experiences and opportunities we want the children to recognise their own worth, work well with others and recognise the wider role they can play within and beyond the school community.


All children are supported to reflect on their experiences and develop their own maturity through our PSHE programme, but also through the strong links of our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural curriculum (SMSC) that we provide to all age groups.


We want all the children at Somerford Primary School to understand and respect views that are similar and different to their own so that they can lead effective and fulfilling relationships that are essential to life as well as learning.


We want all the children from our school to play an active role in our diverse 21st Century society as considerate citizens who possess a developed sense of moral and social justice, which they demonstrate by fairness and consideration to those around them.


Underpinning our PSHE programme and affecting all aspects of school life, sit our core 7 British values.


The school values are:

  • TRUTHFUL – Honest with others
  • TOLERANT – Patient with others
  • KIND – Act for others
  • HELPFUL – Think of others
  • PEACEFUL – Get along with others
  • RESPECTFUL – Accept others
  • LAW ABIDING – Considerate of others
