PSHE Curriculum

Our Curriculum Intent

 The aim at Trinity Croft is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient and successful lifelong learners. Our pupils will understand how to make and manage positive relationships both in person and online, how to lead a healthy lifestyle and manage their finances. They will be given opportunities to make a positive contribution to their local communities and to develop their cultural capital.


Through the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum, we aim for our children to have high aspirations and to make an active and positive contribution to their school, their community and wider society, now and in the future. We want our children to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to keep safe and healthy, both mentally and physically.


PSHE curriculum in intended to prepare children for their future lives in equipping them with the skills and knowledge to be competitive in the future job market and to make sure that they are always safe. Children will learn to value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever changing world.


We intend for the children at Trinity to leave us feeling confident, to make healthy life choices, lead a positive life, and where they can, make active contributions to their communities and wider world.



 Our PSHE curriculum is a 'spiral curriculum' where concepts are regularly revisited to ensure that meaningful connections are made. The children are taught the same units each year through the Jigsaw scheme of work, where prior learning is used as a foundation for new learning which is subsequently well developed. Prior learning is referenced throughout the scheme of work and children become very familiar with the content and structure


Relationships and Sex Education

DfE Statutory guidance on Relationship Education (July 2019) states that ‘The focus on primary school be on the building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and adults.’


As a school we will therefore teach the following areas of Relationship Education:

Different friends, growing and changing, families and care, differences, male and female animals, naming body parts, body difference, personal space, help and support, changes, what is puberty, healthy relationships, talking about puberty, the reproductive system, puberty help and support, puberty and reproduction, communication in relationships, families, conception and pregnancy.


We as a school will be sensitive to our children and their families’ needs throughout the whole introduction of Relationship Education. We will ensure that parents and carers are fully informed prior to any teaching, allowing us to promote engagement within the school community. We will do this by an initial letter to invite parents/carers to an informal meeting or workshop where resources and sample lessons can be shared and offer 1:1 discussions with any families who raise concerns about any aspect of the Relationship Education materials or content.


British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.


The Key Values are:

  • Democracy

  • Rule of Law

  • Tolerance of those of different faiths, beliefs and ideas

  • Individual Liberty

  • Mutual Respect

Our School Council showing how we can work together

When our children came back together after a challenging time, they decided to think carefully about their own mental health and that of others. We came up with the idea of Kindness Cups. Children and teachers can add kind words, a thumbs up, a small gift to anyone's cup, whenever they want to show they care.
