Jigsaw 11-16, the mindful approach to Health and Well-being for Secondary schools, brings together Health and Well-being, emotional literacy, social and employability skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole-school approach, a spiral curriculum, with year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time.

Well-structured lesson plans with Powerpoint Presentations and teaching/learning activities empower the specialist and non-specialist alike, mindful of the often limited planning time available. The focus on mental health is evident throughout, and the content is student-driven and in line with the latest national guidance.

Jigsaw 11-16 is a universal, core Health and Well-being Programme, designed, co-produced and trialled in collaboration with teachers, students and multi-agency teams.

All Jigsaw Programmes are underpinned by mindfulness philosophy with mindfulness practice scripts and audio files included in every lesson, supporting young people’s mental health and learning.

What Jigsaw 11-16 does...

…for students:

  • Provides a safe space to develop knowledge, skills and values
  • Offers strategies to manage emotional and mental health
  • Helps students prepare for future life and work

Ensuring this programme and approach reflects the needs of young people has been critical to its creation and we would like to offer special thanks to Poole’s Members of Youth Parliament and young people from Poole Youth Forum who have played a key role in shaping the content and style.

“We want to understand about mental health, drugs, and issues like peer pressure and relationships because this is important in our whole lives, not just while we are at school.”

Testimonials from Pilot Schools

“The content is Student-driven and appeals to students of all ages, making participation and engagement a key environmental learning factor.”

“Parents really came on board supporting the topics covered in Jigsaw Secondary, allowing the learning to be practised at home”

“Jigsaw 11-16 raised teachers’ awareness of the ingredients of successful social interaction, self-confidence and team-building and we worked as a whole school to keep this high-profile, to good effect for the children, (and the teachers actually)”

“This area of the curriculum has not been given the status it deserves in my school. The Jigsaw Programme will help me make this high-profile across the school, support all the tutors to deliver it well, and give young people their entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum to equip them for life. Thank you. It has been a pleasure being part of the pilot project.”

Subject Leader

“we learn about relationships, money, politics, work and all the things that will help us as we grow up, not just academic subjects like Science and Maths”
