At Preshute we facilitate opening young people’s eyes so that that develop the wisdom to make wise choice for themselves and for others. These skills and attitudes will help prepare out children for life and work in modern Britain. Throughout whole school approach to PSHE we believe it will guide the children towards healthy, safe lives equipping them with emotional literacy for now and in the future. At Preshute we follow Jigsaw, mindful approach to PSHE which holds children at its heart, and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
Jigsaw 3-11 offers a comprehensive Programme for Primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.
Term 1: Being Me in My World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals Term
4: Healthy Me Term 5:
Relationships Term 6:
Changing Me (including Sex Education) - for information on how this is taught please refer to our
Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) (in purple) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills (in green).
Puzzles are designed so that each year group is studying the same unit at the same time (at their own level), building sequentially through the school year, facilitating whole-school learning themes.
The various teaching and learning activities are engaging and mindful of different learning styles and the need for differentiation and the Early Years (EYFS) planning is aligned to the National Early Years Framework (England).
Teachers also have the freedom to deliver the lesson how they see fit for their class.
With the whole school approach, we aim for the children to have a good understanding of how to stay safe, healthy and develop good relationships as well as having the skills for life in a modern-day Britain. We will also see the impact through the children’s behaviour and attitudes towards one another.
