Personal, social, health and economic education
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
New International Version
At Northaw, we follow Jigsaw, a mindful approach to personal, social, health and economic education while observing our distinctive faith perspective on relationships. Before the summer term each year, we endeavour to provide parents and carers with additional information on relationships education from Jigsaw. We promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We participate in Anti-Bullying Week, Hello Yellow (World Mental Health Day), Neurodiversity Celebration Week, Pride Month – a month dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ communities all around the world – and World Autism Acceptance Week. Well-being is carefully nurtured through the five ways to well-being and Feeling Good Week. Forest school is timetabled weekly in early years foundation stage and key stage 1. Watford Community Sports & Education Trust deliver Positive Minds for well-being in year 6.
Adaptation for Inclusion
We want pupils with SEND to achieve exceptionally well in PSHE, and have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence.
Teachers can also refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Guidance where classroom difficulties and strategies to support are listed by area of need.
