Happy Children Learn

Historic Day for PSHE

1st of March 2017 was a historic day for PSHE

At Jigsaw we are delighted with the news that Justine Greening, Education Secretary, announced that RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) will be made compulsory for all schools in England (likely implementation September 2019).

We are totally confident that whatever the revised guidance from the DfE looks like, Jigsaw will meet all the requirements and more. If we need to tweak or enhance the current Jigsaw provision, we will, and the updates will be free to all our Jigsaw schools. So please don’t worry!

Our Jigsaw Community is ahead of the game in terms of implementing a comprehensive PSHE Programme including SRE in the ‘Changing Me’ Puzzle as well as relationships work being woven throughout, and our secondary version of Jigsaw is already under construction. So… a great decision from the DfE. Thank you.

We applaud Justine Greening and sincerely hope that, after the promised consultation, PSHE in general, not just RSE, will be made compulsory and empower all children and young people.

Education, in the true sense, is the understanding of oneself, for it is within each one of us that the whole of existence is gathered.
