At Pucklechurch, we believe that personal, social, health and

economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part

of all pupils’ education. All schools should teach PSHE, drawing

on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the

introduction to the national curriculum. We work hard to make

sure that our children are able to discuss their emotions

effectively, develop strong empathy skills and learn about the

importance of protecting their physical and mental health.


At Pucklechurch, we are a Flagship School for a program called
Jigsaw ( which is a specially selected 
PSHE programme to reflect the needs of our pupils, designed
to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with
the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

There are 6 Jigsaw Puzzles (half-termly units) designed so the whole school can study the same learning themes at the same time, each year group at its own level. The Puzzles are sequential and developmental throughout each academic year.

Term 1 - Being me in my world

Term 2 - Celebrating difference

Term 3 - Dreams and goals

Term 4 - Healthy me

Term 5 - Relationships

Term 6 - Changing me

Each unit begins with a special assembly to launch the puzzle piece and 

children are regularly able to share the thoughts and activities which

have come out of their lessons with their peers in these assemblies.

PSHE lessons, or Jigsaw lessons as teaching staff and children call them,
are delivered weekly and are structured around a mindful, respectful and
open approach to encourage deep discussion and focus on what it takes
to develop physically, mentally and spiritually as a human being.


                                                                                             During term 6, we also teach our Relationships and Sex Education lessons, also a                                                                                           part of Jigsaw. Each year, we inform parents of these lessons and invite them in                                                                                               to present the materials beforehand so that parents are aware of what content is                                                                                               being shared with each year group. Teachers are given refresher training each                                                                                                 year to ensure that the lessons are delivered faithfully and sensitively.
