Personal Development

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education at The Froebelian School

As one of Leeds’ leading independent preparatory schools, children’s health and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that high standards of achievement and attainment are only possible when children feel safe and happy in their learning environment. Therefore, as well as ensuring academic rigour through a rich and stimulating curriculum, we also pay close attention to, and provide dedicated time, for exploring children’s personal development and emotional growth.

Our brand new personal development programme – Jigsaw – and its cohesive vision, help children to understand and value who they are and how they fit and contribute to the world.

Designed as a whole school approach, Jigsaw provides a comprehensive, structured scheme of learning for Foundation Stage to Year 6 which encapsulates personal and social development, health and economic education, emotional literacy, mental health, social skills and spiritual development; all in a lesson-a-week schedule. The PSHEE curriculum promotes a ‘mindful approach’ and the aims of the programme are to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in an ever-changing world.
