At St. Andrew’s we use a PSHE programme called Jigsaw. Jigsaw PSHE brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme.

Designed as a whole school approach, Jigsaw provides a comprehensive scheme of learning for Foundation Stage to Year 6. The DfE specified as part of its National Curriculum guidance that “All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice”.

Our Jigsaw PSHE Programme is informed by existing DfE guidance on Sex and Relationships Education, Preventing and Tackling Bullying, Drug and Alcohol Education, Safeguarding and Equality. It also draws on the advice given in the Church of England document “Valuing All God’s Children Guidance for Church of England schools on challenging homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
