PSHE & RSE
At Sherrier CE Primary, our PSHE provision runs through our curriculum. To help with this, we introduced Jigsaw in 2020. Jigsaw combines PSHE with emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.
Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. It encourages children to try to reflect that learning in their behaviour and attitudes each week and aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
There are Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with Pieces (lessons). Every year group studies the same Puzzle at the same time (sequentially ordered from September to July), allowing for whole school themes and the end of Puzzle product, for example, a display or assembly to be shared and celebrated by the whole school. Each year group is taught one lesson per week and all lessons are delivered in an age- and stage- appropriate way so that they meet children’s needs.
