What is Jigsaw?
Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive primary PSHE Scheme of Work for Years F1 and 2 to Year 6 (ages 3-11). The scheme of work provides a structured and developmental PSHE programme focused on building emotional literacy and social skills within a whole-school approach.
SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) 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 understand how they relate to other people in the world.
Jigsaw contributes, as a good PSHE programme should, 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.
Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and grooming are both terms that have been all over the news and media recently and as parents we can be left with lots of questions, concerns and even feelings of confusion about what they mean and how to protect our children.
If you are a parent or career who wants to learn more about child sexual exploitation, how to spot the signs and how to get help if you’re worried, then this space is for you.
