At Bathampton Primary School, our Personal, Social, Health Education is a whole-school approach. Our PSHE programme underpins children’s development as people and aim’s to develop our pupil's curiosity and awe in the ever changing world around them. Using the Jigsaw Programme, Bathampton offers a comprehensive, carefully thought-through Scheme of Work which brings consistency and progression to our children’s learning in this vital curriculum area. Our children are taught the importance of kindness and respect, celebrating difference and exploring our British values
