Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’


What do we want our curriculum to achieve?

  • Develop the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy, safe and thrive 

  • Support children to develop positive relationships with themselves and others 

  • Assist children to really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people 

How do we fulfil this?


School values

Our values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an ethos and learning environment in which we operate (click on each one to discover more).


Our values link carefully to our PSHE Jigsaw curriculum, a comprehensive Programme for Primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education.


Learning from previous years is revisited and extended, adding new concepts, knowledge and skills, year on year as appropriate.


Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year:


  • Being me in my world: understanding my place in the class, school and global community 
  • Celebrating difference: anti-bullying (cyber and homophobic bullying included) and diversity 
  • Dreams and Goals: goal-setting, aspirations for yourself and the world and working together
  • Healthy Me: drugs and alcohol education, self-esteem and confidence as well as healthy lifestyle choices
  • Relationships: understanding friendship, family and other relationships, conflict resolution and communication skills
  • Changing Me: sex and relationships education in the context of coping positively with change. (includes age-appropriate sex education)


Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to PSHE (including Relationships and Health Education) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.  We have linked these Pieces to our own school values.


Puzzles are launched with a whole-school assembly containing an original song, with each year group studying the same unit at the same time (at their own level), building sequentially through the school year, facilitating whole-school learning themes.


The various teaching and learning activities are engaging and mindful of differentiation.

Protective Behaviours
Our children have the benefit of something called the Protective Behaviours curriculum to:

  • identify when they do not feel safe or comfortable
  • help them to identify their personal network of trusted adults, who they could talk to if anything was worrying them or leaving them feeling unsafe.
