Our Vision: Through teaching our PSHE curriculum, our aim is to provide our children with the language and tools they need so that they can be happy, safe and successful for the rest of their lives.

PSHE Education (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) allows pupils to aquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to successfully manage their lives - both now and in the future. Cannon Lane follows the Jigsaw scheme of work, which is supported by the PSHE Association.

PSHE enables pupils to develop the knowledge and understanding of their own and different beliefs, financial wellbeing, tobacco, drug and alcohol education, mental and physical health, relationships and sex education, and wellbeing. We prepare children to understand their rights, responsibilities, develop integrity and independence in building respect for their environments and communities.

At Cannon Lane, we want children to have the vocabulary to talk about mental health and an understanding of how to stay healthy physically by learning how to make healthy choices. We want children to understand how to manage money more responsibly and how to develop healthy relationships. We do this through the teaching of our curriculum, which you can see at the bottom of the page.

Curriculum Overview                   


"Jigsaw is a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, aiming to prepare children/young people for life, helping them to really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world."
