Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)

At Edenbridge, we follow the Jigsaw Scheme of work to deliver our PSHE Curriculum. This progressive and fully planned scheme of work, gives 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 teachers to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Our Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

How the 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).
