The PSHE curriculum at Barry Primary School keeps our three school rules at the root of our learning:

  • Care for others
  • Care for the environment
  • Care for ourselves

A Guide for Parents and Carers

From Nursery, all the way through to Year 5, we follow the Jigsaw Programme of Study.

It is broken into six core themes:


While these topics all have separate, progressive lessons and assessment across each year group, they are continually re-visited and extended whenever needed and intertwine with our everyday school life.

We have a school council made up of elected representatives, with two members from each class (Years 2-6).  Meetings are held to discuss and make decisions on various aspects of school life, including the school environment, behaviour and fund-raising activities. 

The following British Values are incorporated and demonstrated through our curriculum:

• Democracy
• The rule of law
• Individual liberty
• Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

At Barry Primary School, we teach these values as part of our everyday learning, but also, more explicitly in our Barry Values PSHE sessions

As the children progress through the school, we encourage them to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England.

They are supported to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working within the school and as part of our wider community.

Our PSHE curriculum aims to develop the qualities and skills our pupils need to thrive as individuals, part of a family and as members of their wider community.   It plays a huge part in our day-to-day learning at Barry Primary School and we hope the pride in our school community shines through in everything we do.
