Jigsaw PSHE

Jigsaw PSHE

Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive primary PSHE Scheme of Work for Years F1 and 2 to Year 6 (ages 3-11). The scheme of work provides a structured and developmental PSHE programme focused on building emotional literacy and social skills within a whole-school approach.

Jigsaw, is a primary Scheme of Work for PSHE education, including 288 lesson plans and supporting teaching materials. The whole school engages in one theme at a time across all year groups, with 6 themes over the course of a year, one per half term. Each unit is launched with an assembly and each Puzzle works towards a whole school piece of work each term.

  • The teaching strategies outlined are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. All teaching resources - such as Powerpoint presentations, interactive games and activities are provided.
  • The included ‘Jigsaw friends’ characters are unique to each year group and integral to each lesson. They are valuable teaching aides, especially for issues some pupils may consider sensitive.
  • The Scheme of Work also focuses on developing mindfulness techniques and enhancing pupils’ learning and personal development, therefore supporting the self- regulation of emotion, building of emotional resilience and enhancement of pupil focus and concentration, while building the capacity to learn.


The PSHE Association’s Subject Lead Karen Summers says;

“This is a really comprehensive resource. It links emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development alongside an integrated mindfulness approach in order to support pupils’ learning in PSHE.

Members will especially appreciate:

  • planning has already been done for them and links well with SEAL themes and plans
  • the comprehensive nature of the resources will save a great deal of preparation time
  • the attainment descriptors provide a benchmark for teachers to evidence pupil progress as well as continuity and progression across the PSHE curriculum,
  • how the resource sits well within a creative curriculum, especially for schools using Philosophy for Children communities of enquiry or following a growth mind set approach to enrich pupils’ learning."
