PSHE is embedded in all that we do to enable our children to become independent, responsible, healthy and confident members of society. Our PSHE curriculum has been built with the aim to support the development of the ‘whole child’, by helping them to understand how they are developing personally and socially as well as promoting their social, mental and physical development. Children will be able to develop the ability to tackle the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Through our discreet lessons as well as a wider cross curricular approach to teaching PSHE, children are taught how to keep themselves safe, physically and emotionally resulting in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, which enables children to access the wider curriculum. 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.

At Cookham Dean we use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6. This focusses on the following areas: 

Term 1: Being Me in My World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing Me (including Sex Education)

Emotional Well Being Ambassadors


Who are we?


What do we do?

Our role is to help and support any children within the play ground at play times and lunch times.


How do we do this?

We are constantly looking around the playground to see if there are children sitting on the buddy bench who need a friend to play with.

Children can approach us and we will help them.

We help to influence the children by being good role models and helping them to play happily.


How do they know who we are?

We wear yellow caps at lunch time and play time, so we stand out in the playground.


Buddy Bench

If children cannot find one of their friends to play with at play time, then we have a buddy bench in the play ground which children can sit on and then us, as Emotional Well-being ambassadors will go and help these children to find their friends to play with or we will play with them.
