Warley Town School

Wellbeing

At Warley Town wellbeing is highly valued and nurtured. Our wellbeing curriculum includes:

  • PSED (Personal, Social & Emotional Development - EYFS)
  • PSHE (Personal Social& Health Education - KS1 & 2)
  • RSE (Relationships & Sex Education)
  • Safeguarding
  • Charity work

In 2021, we introduced 'Wellbeing Wednesdays'. Each half term, the children  experience a whole day dedicated to promoting and maintaining better wellbeing. Our Wellbeing Wednesdays will focus on the five ways to wellbeing:

Jigsaw (PHSE & RSE)

At Warley Town we follow a scheme of work called Jigsaw. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus. We include the statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme.

We value PSHE as one way to support children’s development as human beings, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice and to equip them for life and learning. 

At Warley Town we have concluded that sex education refers to human reproduction, and therefore inform parents of their right to request their child be withdrawn from the PSHE lessons that explicitly teach this in the Jigsaw Changing Me Puzzle (unit): 

  • Year 4, Lesson 2 (Having a baby)                        
  • Year 5, Lesson 4 (Conception)                              
  • Year 6, Lesson 4 (Conception, birth)                       

These lessons will take place in the Summer term. Before the Changing Me Puzzle (unit). Parents will be reminded before the unit begins of their right to withdraw their child from these lessons.  Parents are asked to make this request in writing.
