At Thurnby Mead Primary Academy, we follow the Jigsaw scheme for our PHSE lessons. Alongside this, we use the No Outsiders approach to teach the Equality Act and we use our character education to ensure our children leave us as well-rounded citizens ready for the next stage of their lives. We are passionate about developing confident, resilient, accepting, and happy children and we believe that our PHSE curriculum is crucial in this goal. All children at Thurnby Mead, engage in discussions, debates, and investigates. We also promote active citizenship through our charity fundraising, the planning of special in school events and with opportunities to engage with the local citizens. In KS2, children begin to take a leadership role by helping to plan, organise and run events.  Visitors and speakers also visit our children to develop their awareness of healthy and safe behaviours.  Please see the attached documents for further information about our PHSE Curriculum.
