Carrington Infant School gives a high priority to the development of personal and social skills. Our curriculum is a carefully planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences built around the Jigsaw scheme of work that enable children and young people to grow and develop as individuals and as valuable members of families and of social and economic communities.
Personal and social education provides children and young people with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. It inspires them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively. It gives children and young people the skills to reflect on and analyse their own values and equips them to face difficult and sometimes conflicting attitudes they may face in the future. This scheme also helps children to make healthy choices in their lives and to develop a healthy mind.
