At Croft C of E Primary, our PSHE provision runs through our curriculum. In addition to this, we have introduced Jigsaw. Jigsaw combines PSHE with emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.


Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. It encourages children to try to reflect on their behaviour and attitudes each week and aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

There are Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with pieces (lessons). Every year group studies the same Puzzle at the same time (sequentially ordered from September to July). Each year group is taught one lesson per week and all lessons are delivered in an age- and stage- appropriate way so that they meet children’s needs.
