St Martin's Church of England Primary School

Personal, Social, Health Education at St Martin's

                     

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.

 

The Six Puzzles

There are six Puzzles in Jigsaw that are designed to progress in sequence from September to July:

 

Autumn 1:     Being Me in My World

Autumn 2:     Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)

Spring 1:        Dreams and Goals

Spring 2:        Healthy Me

Summer 1:     Relationships

Summer 2:     Changing Me (including Sex Education) - this topic will be delivered
                      from Summer 2019

Each Piece has two Learning Intentions: one is based on specific PSHE learning (covering the non-statutory national framework for PSHE Education but enhanced to address children’s needs today); and one is based on emotional literacy and social skills (covering the SEAL learning intentions but also enhanced).  The enhancements mean that Jigsaw is relevant to children living in today’s world as it helps them understand and be equipped to cope with issues like body image, cyber and homophobic bullying, and internet safety.
