Welcome to Jigsaw

...the mindful approach to PSHE

Jigsaw PSHE brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme.

Designed as a whole school approach, Jigsaw provides a comprehensive scheme of learning for Foundation Stage to Year 6.  It makes teachers’ lives easier by providing well-structured, progressive lesson plans with all the teaching resources included (except story books).

What the PSHE Association says...

PSHE Association Quality Assured Resource

This resource received the Quality Assurance Mark for PSHE education resources back in August 2015. This mark helps teachers choose resources that meet a demanding set of standards drawn from 10 research-evidenced principles of PSHE education.

“This is a really comprehensive resource. It links emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development alongside an integrated mindfulness approach in order to support pupils’ learning in PSHE.

Members will especially appreciate:

  • planning has already been done for them and links well with SEAL themes and plans
  • the comprehensive nature of the resources will save a great deal of preparation time
  • the attainment descriptors provide a benchmark for teachers to evidence pupil progress as well as continuity and progression across the PSHE curriculum,
  • how the resource sits well within a creative curriculum, especially for schools using Philosophy for Children communities of enquiry or following a growth mind set approach to enrich pupils’ learning.”
