As Jigsaw PSHE Coordinator I want to encourage all children to be unique, positive, mindful individuals. Personal, social and health education forms an integral part of the curriculum at Grove Primary. It helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. All members of staff are committed to encouraging the children to develop an understanding of right and wrong and to take responsibility for their own behaviour. We use the Jigsaw scheme as a basis for our PHSE teaching and learning.
Jigsaw offers a comprehensive Programme for Primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
