PSHE Vision

At Trinity, our vision for PSHE is for all children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society who understand how they are developing personally and socially. PSHE at Trinity aims to give children the confidence to tackle many of the social, moral and cultural issues that are a part of growing up. Throughout the PSHE curriculum, children are nurtured and challenged, with the aim being that every child achieves more than they ever thought possible. Throughout their time at Trinity, we help children to become local, national and global citizens, and are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

 

PSHE at Trinity

At Trinity, we teach children using the JIGSAW approach. The JIGSAW approach incorporates Health education, British Values and sex and relationship education using a mindful approach. We aim to establish a safe, open and positive learning environment based on trusting relationships between all members of the class.

Jigsaw covers all areas of PSHE for the primary phase including statutory Relationships and Health Education. The overview below gives the learning theme of each of the six units (puzzle pieces) and these are taught across the school; the learning deepens and broadens every year.

 

Dreams and Goals Enterprise School Fair 2024

 

This year we ran our first enterprise school fair. Economics is an important part of the PSHE curriculum and we wanted children to explore the importance of money, buying and selling. Each year group made items to sell to the rest of the school. We worked together to choose the cost of the items, and sold these in order to make a profit. To support our learning, we welcomed in parents from the finance sector to give children an insight into what it's like to work in the world of finance. This aided children's understanding of how money, profits and finance works. Please look through our photos of the enterprise week below.

Healthy Minds

Over the last year, we have been working hard to ensure that our school is developing a healthy and happy learning environment. We have been working with the North Somerset Healthy Schools network to obtain the award. Please see below the certificate awarded as well as the summary report written by the Healthy Schools network demonstrating our hard work.

 

Our Vision for Mental Health and Wellbeing at Trinity

At Trinity, we strive to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community and recognise the importance both play in our lives in the same way as physical health. Through the promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing, our children are helped to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence, emotional resilience and therefore improving their capacity to learn, equipping them to be healthy learners for life.

Mental Health and Well being

Positive mental wellbeing is essential if children and young people are to flourish and lead fulfilling lives.

We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable, and at times, in need of additional emotional support. Our school believes that teaching about mental and emotional wellbeing as part of a comprehensive PSHE curriculum is vital and our pupils learn that mental wellbeing is a normal part of everyday life. We ensure that our pupils know that good mental health is just as important as physical health and promote the link between the two.

Through our Healthy Minds lessons, we:

  • Ensure pupils are able to recognise different emotions and teach coping strategies to help manage them in healthy ways.
  • Learn through our Anxiety Gremlin work that anxiety is an emotion we all feel and explore different ways of managing and controlling any anxieties we may have.
  • Encourage pupils to engage in and express themselves through a range of creative activities to promote wellbeing e.g. writing, yoga, art, music, construction, photography and fitness.
  • Prepare and support pupils to manage times of change and stress.
  • Promote and teach mindfulness (being present in the moment) to improve good mental wellbeing.
  • Teach strategies to maintain positive mental health, understand what can affect their mental health and how we can help to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

We offer different levels of support:

Universal support: to meet the needs of all our pupils through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance, developing resilience for all through our Yeti work. Children have weekly PSHE (Jigsaw) and Healthy Minds lessons. Whole school fundraising events for charities and Children’s Mental Health Week.

Additional support: For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement, eg: Oasis meetings, support from a member of the Inclusion Team.  

Targeted support: For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions, eg: intervention with the Learning Mentor. 

 

 

My Voice Matters | Children's Mental Health Week 2024

5th - 11th February 2024

During Children's Menat Helath Week at Trinity, all pupils had the opportunity to participate in activities that included storytelling, mindfulness activities, role play, quizzes, creating positive affirmation notes and reflective time to think about the things that matter to them.

 

Please take a look at the 'Top Tips' documents for children and familites to support your child's mental health.

Vision

Together we inspire, through our Christian values, unique individuals who believe they can achieve more than they ever thought possible in mind, body and spirit. Through nurture and challenge, we provide a firm foundation to enable all to thrive, to lead and serve in their life long journey as local, national and global citizens.
