Personal Development

In Personal Development, we follow the JIGSAW scheme of work.

The School Behaviour Policy and Ethos form the basis of the teaching of PSHE (PD) and children experience specific PSHE session alongside adult role modelling, rewards, sanctions and reminders throughout all activities. Within this, children are taught about British Values through focused assemblies.  They also developed an understanding of charity and the lives of others through our focused charity days and events that the school supports. Central to all - are our school values - perseverance, reflection. resourcefulness, cooperation and curiosity.


At Sauncey Wood, in the Early Years, children are encouraged to develop a positive sense of themselves, form positive relationships and learn how to manage their feelings and behaviour.  In Key Stage One and Two, the PSHE curriculum is based on the JIGSAW scheme of work.
