Personal Development & PSHE
PSHE at Atam curriculum ensures that each of our pupils knows, understands and remembers how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as a child and as an adult in the future. It enables them to becoming active informed global citizens. We equip pupils with knowledge of their world, locally, nationally and globally and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Moreover, our pupils are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
All pupils, in both primary and secondary, follow the Jigsaw PSHE curriculum.The Jigsaw curriculum is adapted and supplemented to meet the current contextual needs of the pupils. In addition to Jigsaw, the school utilises resources and guidance from the PSHE association and local authority.
