Personal, Social and Health Education:

At Hawthorn we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work.

A considerable emphasis is placed on providing a caring and supportive environment in which children feel happy and safe. Our topic New Beginnings teaches us about ourselves and how we can cope with new situations and challenges. Through our topics It’s Good To Be Me, and Going For Goals We celebrate ourselves and our achievements as well as the achievements of others.

At Hawthorn we teach pupils to care for each other, be polite, helpful and sociable. We promote self-motivation and self-control. We foster an understanding and respect for others through our units Getting On And Falling out and Relationships, and we expect good behaviour at all times. Every November we include a unit on Anti-Bullying. At Hawthorn we promote healthy lifestyles through our topics Healthy Eating, Teeth and Personal Finances. We also learn about keeping ourselves safe during the topics Rail Safety, Alcohol, Smoking, Road Safety, Water Safety and Sun Safety.
