At WHA we follow a tried and tested scheme called Jigsaw –which has been adopted by the Park Federation. This scheme fits with the principles of our curriculum and has a range of experiences, a broad outlook linked to values and not just knowledge. It also ensures our parents can be confident that the material delivered has no bias and delivers the national requirements.
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.
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).
