Whole School Overview

Our Approach

We use the Jigsaw approach which 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). 

Jigsaw also helps to support the Prevent Strategy. The main way in which Jigsaw offers support is through the adoption of a whole-school approach; our school fosters a climate of mutual understanding and respect.
