PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health Education. RSE stands for Relationships and Sex Education


At Leigh on Mendip School, we seek to equip our children with the skills and attributes to thrive in life and to make a positive contribution to society. Our focus is for every child to become a healthy, independent and responsible member of society.


Our aim is to empower pupils through PSHE lessons and assemblies giving them opportunities to develop confidence and gain an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our school, community and the wider world. 

We use the Jigsaw PSHE scheme which covers six key areas of learning:

  • Identity and self esteem

  • Equality and diversity

  • Being ambitious

  • Being healthy

  • Good relationships

  • Changing me.

We teach the core British values through our Jigsaw scheme covering:

  • democracy;

  • the rule of law;

  • individual liberty;

  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

The scheme also includes social and emotional aspects of learning, relationships and health education and supports our school values and the development of positive learning behaviours.
