The PSHCE curriculum at Eastfield aims to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society. It prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The PSHCE curriculum is predominately delivered through JIGSAW which aims to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
Jigsaw PSHE will support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enable pupils to:
⦁ Have a sense of purpose
⦁ Value self and others
⦁ Form relationships
⦁ Make and act on informed decisions
⦁ Communicate effectively
⦁ Work with others
⦁ Respond to challenge
⦁ Be an active partner in their own learning
⦁ Be active citizens within the local community
⦁ Explore issues related to living in a democratic society
⦁ Become healthy and fulfilled individuals
If you visit our school you will find our pupils look smart, smile and move about the place in a civilised fashion. This is encouraged through our positive set of school rules called the SMART values and appropriate rewards and sanctions.
Pupils are rewarded whose behavior is seen by a member of staff to be courteous, helpful or positive in some way. This could be something as simple as holding a door open for another pupil, walking sensibly along a corridor or something more substantial such as looking after an upset child at playtime.

Fundamental British Values
Here at Eastfield Primary, we actively promote British values in just some of the following ways:
- Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.
- Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England Individual Liberty
- Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
- Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
We believe that every member of our school community should have an equal opportunity to achieve his or her full potential regardless of race, colour, gender, disability, special educational needs or social economic background.
We believe that it is the right of all pupils to be educated in an environment free from disruption by others. This policy sets out the framework for the behaviour, responsibilities, values and attitudes expected of our community members within a Restorative Practice philosophy. Restorative Practice aims to build our Eastfield community and to repair and strengthen relationships within this community. Our school embraces Restorative Practice (RP) as a means of empowering all staff members to be successful and effective practitioners within each classroom, raising standards and achievement across the school and developing aspirational, motivated and responsible pupils.
