PSHE Education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives – now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE Education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
The Jigsaw Approach for Years 1-6
Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation.
Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.
How can I find out more information?
The best thing to do is to talk to your child’s teacher about how Jigsaw is taught in school. Alternatively, you can talk to the school’s head teacher.
If there are some very specific questions that the head teacher or class teacher thinks would be answered best by the Jigsaw team, the school can contact the team directly.
Parents and carers are very welcome to visit the Jigsaw website.
