Jigsaw at Rolls Crescent


PSHE at Rolls Crescent is taught through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. We ensure we cover the Health and Well-Being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World Learning Opportunities set out in the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study, which comprehensively cover the statutory Health Education and Relationships Education guidance.

Pupils are taught PSHE using ‘Jigsaw’ which is a spiral, progressive scheme of work, covering all of the above and 'aims to prepare children for life, helping them to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world’. There is a strong emphasis on emotional Literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. It includes mindfulness to allow children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

PSHE is taught through Jigsaw’s six half termly themes with each year group studying the same unit at the same time:

  • Autumn 1: Being Me in My World Autumn 2: Differences
  • Spring 1: Dreams and Goals
  • Spring 2: Healthy Me
  • Summer 1: Relationships
  • Summer 2: Changing Me

The children have a right to express themselves and give their opinions. This is important to how the sessions themselves are run. The children use skills learnt during P4C sessions, a dialogue-based approach, where they are encouraged to use their RAG cups and sentence frames to respond openly to the opinions of others.

An introductory assembly from the Heads of School introduces each of the half termly themes. Further assemblies then link in well with our school values and the pshe program, as well as helping the children understand their rights.

Sessions are completed around school related to the Rights enshrined with the UNICEF CRC. These link in well with the knowledge and skills taught within our JIGSAW unit.


By the time our children leave our school they will:

  • be able to approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life
  • undertand and be able to actively live by our values of: respect, empathy, responsibility, kindness, resilience and fairness
