In PSHE we learn about each other and ourselves
Jigsaw covers all areas of PSHE for the primary phase, including statutory Relationships and Health Education. Class teachers deliver weekly lessons to their own classes and these lessons are reinforced and enhanced through assemblies and relationships with others across the school. We aim to ‘live’ what is learnt and apply it to everyday situations in the school community.
The table below gives the learning theme of each of the six Puzzles (units) which are taught across the school, with the learning deepening and broadening every year through a progressive curriculum.
Progression in PSHE
Progression is carefully planned into our PSHE curriculum through our Jigsaw scheme. We evidence this in a number of ways including the following:

'PSHE, teaches you about things in your life that will help you when you are grown up. Aspirations, opportunities and diets. It teaches you how to express your opinions, emotions and about values'.
