PSHE & Citizenship Curriculum
Holy Trinity uses the Jigsaw PSHE programme which perfectly connects the pieces of Personal, Social and Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development.
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and citizenship, promotes pupils’ personal social and emotional development, as well as their health and well-being. It supports pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in society at local, national and international levels. It helps them become informed, thoughtful and responsible individuals who are aware of their duties and rights. It aims to help pupils to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It gives children an understanding of the rights and responsibilities that are part of being a good citizen, which enables them to play an active and healthy part in the life of our school, their community and the world.
Designed as a whole-school approach, we use the Jigsaw PSHE programme to provide a detailed and comprehensive scheme of learning for the whole school. Jigsaw makes teachers’ lives easier by providing extremely well-structured, progressive lesson plans with teaching resources included.
The weekly lessons are a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, aiming to prepare children for life, helping them really know and value who they truly are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world. This subject is taught mainly with various hands on activities, discussions, debates and circle time.

All staff at Holy Trinity strive to ensure that our pupils leave with the strongest foundation of values upon which to build a successful life and make a positive contribution to our society.
The fundamental British values are:
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths.
The DfE’s non-statutory guidance on promoting British values in schools outlines the understanding and knowledge expected of pupils as a result of schools meeting the requirement “to 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.”
