At Newbridge Junior School we follow a scheme of work called Jigsaw. There are six Puzzles in Jigsaw that are designed to progress in sequence from the start of each academic year.

Each Puzzle has six Pieces (lessons) and each piece has two Learning Intentions: one is based on specific PSHE learning and one is based on emotional literacy and social skills development. The whole school works on the same Puzzle at the same time, meaning that each Puzzle can be launched with a whole-school assembly and learning can be celebrated by the whole school in a meaningful way.

Jigsaw provides a comprehensive PSHE Programme which covers all the requirements of the government guidance and outcomes, and more. The Relationships and Healthy Me Puzzles (units) cover most of the aspects in the guidance but these are enhanced, revisited and foundations built throughout the Jigsaw Programme. Jigsaw’s philosophy starts by building positive self-image, a sense of identity and a healthy relationship with self, and from that starting point helps children grow healthy relationships with others. Health Education in Jigsaw embraces not only physical health but has a strong focus on mental health and  emotional literacy throughout, and empowers children to be aware of their own thoughts and feelings and know how to manage and regulate these (e.g.using Calm Me (mindfulness techniques).

Thank you to all those who contributed to our RSE parental consultation. We have now finalised our RSE policy based on the new national requirements.

 From September 2020, all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education.

Relationships Education is designed to help children to have positive and safe relationships with family, friends and online.

Health Education will help children to make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
