Does Jigsaw PSHE really work?

Independent research and school feedback confirms "Yes!"
Sheffield Hallam Study

Sheffield Hallam University LogoThe Sheffield Hallam Centre for Education and Inclusion Research conducted an independent impact study with 101 schools, 195 teachers and 812 children and concluded that Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, really works!


“We achieved outstanding in our recent OFSTED inspection for elements where Jigsaw had clearly impacted. Jigsaw has proved to be a such a valuable investment and we are compliant with compulsory Relationship and Health Education guidance. As a very small rural school with little capital and busy staff, being able to use Pupil Premium and School Sports funding to buy Jigsaw helped us supplement the funds we had already raised through our parent fundraising group. The children love Jigsaw, it’s effective and we have saved the staff time, worry and energy. What’s not to like?”

Governor (Cumbria)


Around 95% of Bristol Primary schools are using Jigsaw PSHE to deliver social and emotional skills in every lesson including Mindfulness, increasing focus on support around mental health and wellbeing. We were fortunate to discover the Jigsaw PSHE programme and found it gave us all we were looking for, and more!

The Jigsaw Structure

How the big picture fits together
Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.

Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.

Puzzles are launched with a whole-school assembly containing an original song, with each year group studying the same unit at the same time (at their own level), building sequentially through the school year, facilitating whole-school learning themes.

The various teaching and learning activities are engaging and mindful of different learning styles and the need for differentiation and the Early Years (EYFS) planning is aligned to the National Early Years Framework (England).

Jigsaw’s Units of Work (Puzzles) are:

Being Me in My World
1. Being Me in My World
Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community as well as devising Learning Charters.
Celebrating Difference
2. Celebrating Difference
Includes anti-bullying (cyber and homophobic bullying included) and diversity work.
Dreams and Goals
3. Dreams and Goals
Includes goal-setting, aspirations for yourself and the world and working together.
Healthy Me
4. Healthy Me
Includes drugs and alcohol education, self-esteem and confidence as well as healthy lifestyle choices.
5. Relationships
Includes understanding friendship, family and other relationships, conflict resolution and communication skills.
Changing Me
6. Changing Me
This puzzle includes sex and relationships education in the context of coping positively with change. (includes age-appropriate sex education)
