Our OFSTED report is now available Some of the positive comments made in the report include: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection”. “Pupils enjoy coming to school and say teachers make the learning enjoyable and interesting”. “New topics cleverly combine a range of national curriculum themes in ways that are engaging, practical and appealing to pupils”. “Teachers teach with enthusiasm”. “They hold high expectations which are clearly reflected in the great care all pupils take with their presentation of their work”. “Pupils’ books for this academic year already show considerable progress has been made”. “Displays in classrooms and around school showcase examples of writing that have flair and technical excellence”. “High expectations across the school mean standards of writing in English and topic books are consistently high”. “Pupils currently in the school are making strong progress because teachers have good subject knowledge and make clear how pupils can improve their work”. “The culture in school is one of high expectations and aspiration for all. You, your leadership team and all members of staff are determined pupils will thrive and attain the best possible standards”. Thank you once again for your continued support. Mr Hodgson Thank you for all your support over the last two years. The children of Green Gates Primary are very special and will always have a special place in my heart. Mr Hodgson

Jigsaw PSHE

Here at Green Gates, we have recently started to use Jigsaw PSHE throughout school.

What is Jigsaw PSHE?

Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Nursery through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. The statutory guidance for Relationships and Health Education for primary schools is also covered within this scheme.

SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in the world.

British Values

Jigsaw contributes, as a good PSHE programme should, to the British Values agenda very significantly, both through the direct teaching of information and through the experiential learning children will enjoy.

The 5 strands of the British Values agenda have been mapped across every Puzzle and every Piece (lesson).

We link our whole school assemblies and our Friday Golden Assembly to the Jigsaw Themes and Values being taught and applied through the PSHE curriculum. We are proud of the way we promote emotional wellbeing for all our pupils through our Jigsaw programme which underpins the whole of our curriculum.

The 6 Jigsaw Puzzles (half-termly units) are designed so the whole school can study the same learning themes at the same time, each year group at its own level. The Puzzles are sequential and developmental throughout each academic year. The puzzles are:

·         Being Me

·         Celebrating Differences

·         Dreams and Goals

·         Healthy Me

·         Relationships

·         Changing Me

Each child has a Jigsaw Journal where we store all their learning activities. We also have a designated Jigsaw Celebration Display in the school hall where we share our achievements and successes.  P
