Here at St Luke's Catholic Primary School, we have recently begun to follow the Jigsaw Scheme for PSHE work. All classes are following this scheme and each class has their own individual Jigsaw character to help them along with their work.
What is Jigsaw PSHE?
Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Years F1 and 2 through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
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. Information regarding this can be found below.
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). Information regarding this can be found below.
Jigsaw also helps to support the Prevent Strategy. The main way in which Jigsaw offers support is through the adoption of a whole-school approach; our school fosters a climate of mutual understanding and respect. Information regarding this can be found below.
NB. Please note that Puzzle 6 'Changing Me' is not taught. Please see our RSE Curriculum page for more information.
