Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Nursery through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. The statutory guidance for Relationships and Health Education for primary schools is also covered within this scheme.
SMSC development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and recognise how they relate to other people in the world.
Jigsaw contributes to the British Values agenda very significantly, both through the direct teaching of information and through the experiential learning children will enjoy.
The 5 strands of the British Values agenda have been mapped across every Puzzle and every Piece (lesson).
We link our whole school assemblies and our Friday Golden Assembly to the Jigsaw Themes and Values being taught and applied through the PSHE curriculum. We are proud of the way we promote emotional wellbeing for all our pupils through our Jigsaw programme which underpins the whole of our curriculum.
The 6 Jigsaw Puzzles are designed so the whole school can study the same learning themes at the same time, each year group at its own level. The Puzzles are sequential and developmental throughout each academic year. They are:
- Being Me
- Celebrating Differences
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
Each child has a Jigsaw Journal where we store all their learning activities.
