Our Value for this half term is Resilience.

Personal, Social, Health, Economic and Citizenship (PSHE & C)



At Gunness and Burringham Church of England Primary School, our PSHE & RSE curriculum enables our children to become healthy, independent, resilient and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles 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.


Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. PSHE&C is integral to the development of children’s values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing community. PSHE&RSE  is an important part of school assemblies and collective worship where children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.




At Gunness and Burringham we use  as our approach to teaching our curriculum.

It is a spiral curriculum taught weekly in class. Jigsaw encourages wisdom and resilience through different themed units, each term a new theme is introduced with opportunity to revisit and consolidate aspects of previously taught units. All units start with "Calm Me Time" and allows the children the opportunity to feel relaxed, calm and ready to learn. Each class has their own floorbook to record any thoughts, feeling and work and each class has their own Jigsaw character to encourage turn taking and patience. 




"Your children are some of the kindest and most thoughtful children that we have ever had at Robinwood" Sean Leader at Robinwood.


During a recent Safeguarding Review, children were very confident to talk to the advisor about their Big Talk experience They could demonstrate a clear understanding of their private parts of their bodies and knew what do and who to talk to if they felt unsafe.


Our children are ready, respectful and safe and have a positive, caring nature to everybody within the school and the wider community. 







Pupil voice about their Jigsaw lessons:

"I like that you can have a choice of what to say and think if you don’t feel comfortable you can say ‘pass’" - Year 4 child


"I like hearing other people's perspectives on things. It's interesting because we don’t all think the same."- Year 6 child

PSHE in the classroom: 


Calm me time is a time for our children to spend listening to the Jigsaw chime and practicing calming and breathing techniques. The children sit all togther, staff included and have some time feeling calm and peaceful. 


At Gunness and Burringham Primary School we recognise the importance of giving our children the knowledge they need to become agents of change in our ever changing world but also recognise the dangers our children may come across in our local area.


Therefore we ask for experts in road safety, river safety and first aid to come and deliver engaging and informative sessions to our pupils that are age appropriate. 

Here are some photos of our most recent group of Mini Police officers who spent many weeks learning about particular subjects such as speeding, anti-social behaviour and how Police officers work in crime scenes. We were lucky enough to have these sessions run by our local PCSO Hannah Girst. The children were then able to share the knowledge gained to their peers in assemblies. 


Our school is situated next to the River Trent therefore it is important to us for our children to receive water safety lessons from a swimming teacher for the North Lincolnshire Council. The children gained some excellent knowledge from these sessions and now have a better understanding of the dangers of open water.
