Jigsaw / PSHE

PSHE - Mrs Shearsby                      





We want to provide our pupils with a nurturing learning environment and a PSHE curriculum that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, in order to reach their full potential as individuals and within the community. We follow the Jigsaw PSHE programme and this equips all pupils with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing physical and mental health. The PSHE curriculum perfectly connects the pieces of Personal, Social and Health Education and moral, intellectual and spiritual development




The principles of Jigsaw are embedded within our school and threaded through our curriculum and school day with regular opportunities for practising mindfulness included. Where possible, our PSHE topics are linked to other cross curricular areas, but children are made aware when they are learning aspects of PSHE and how it is in everything we do. Puzzles (units of work) 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. Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills. Formative self-assessment is used throughout lessons and a summative assessment is carried out at the end of each topic. This enables teachers and leaders to see what children know and what they have learnt. Progression and coverage are monitored closely to ensure continuation from EYFS to Year Two.




Children will recognise that they belong to our school community and a wider community. They will become active members of our school community, valuing and being valued as individuals. Children will become more emotionally aware and resilient and have a greater understanding of who they are and their place in the world. They will have the vocabulary to begin to communicate this and discuss their feelings and recognise their emotions. Children can apply these communication skills to all aspects of their life. Our children will be equipped with the skills to enable them to adapt, grow and be active citizens within an ever-changing world. They will be able to apply strategies to look after their mental health and wellbeing.
