Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE

At South Petherton C of E Infants and Pre-School we use Jigsaw PSHE/Health and Well-being providing a detailed and comprehensive scheme of learning for all our children.  Jigsaw provides well-structured, progressive lessons and is used at our Pre-School, Infant School and at South Petherton Junior School.  Jigsaw is a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, aiming to prepare children/young people for life, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.  


Jigsaw PSHE for Early Years (Ages 3-4)

Jigsaw PSHE for Early Years and Pre-schools (Ages 3-4) integrates emotional literacy, self-regulation of behaviour, social skills and spiritual development in a session-per-week programme and includes teaching resources including songs and images.  Sessions are structured to include a short input using a variety of learning approaches, appropriate for young pre-schoolers, with a selection of activities which can be accommodated throughout the week to support the learning.  Jigsaw PSHE for Early Years includes mapping to Development Matters and the Early Learning Goals and identifies the Characteristics of Effective Learning for every session.


Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work includes statutory Relationships and Health Education

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.  With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 equips us 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.
