What is Jigsaw PSHE?
Jigsaw PSHE aims to support schools to work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure appropriate, accurate sex and relationship education.
Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole primary school, from Year F1 to Year 6 (3-11 year olds). It integrates PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a whole-school approach.
The Jigsaw PSHE sex and relationship education unit of work aims to give children their entitlement to information about relationships, puberty and human reproduction, appropriate to their ages and stages of development. It is treated in a matter-of-fact manner to allay embarrassment and fear. We do not believe it is controversial. It is flexible enough for a school to ensure that the material fits its ethos and values. There is a strong safeguarding element to Changing Me – the unit of work that teaches sex and relationship education.

Our PSHE Curriculum Enrichment – Diversity and Equality Week
To support our teaching of PSHE and SMSC each year, we hold a ‘Diversity and Equality’ enrichment week which is aimed at raising children’s awareness and understanding of the diversity of human culture.
To support this we use ‘No Outsiders in Our School: Teaching the Equality Act in Primary Schools’ by Andrew Moffat
This resource provides much needed support for every primary school in the delivery of the objectives outlined in the Equality Act 2010; and in the provision of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) for every child.
No Outsiders in Our School provides us with a curriculum that promotes equality for all sections of the community. But more than that, the resource aims to bring children and parents on board from the start so that children leave primary school happy and excited about living in a community full of difference and diversity, whether that difference is through race, gender, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or religion.
Includes 5 lesson plans for every primary school year group (EYFS- Y6) based upon a selection of 35 picture books. Issues addressed include: gender and gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disability and age.
