PSHE / Jigsaw

PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually. We offer a nurturing learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop their full potential and where their achievements and successes are celebrated and rewarded.  As a school, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to encourage mutual respect, responsibility and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere.


What is Jigsaw?

Jigsaw is a PSHE Education programme with a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time.

Jigsaw has two aims for all children:

To build their capacity for learning

To equip them for life


How does Jigsaw work at Kingsthorne?

Jigsaw lessons are delivered once a week in each class. The children join in in circle time activities and mindfulness training, they play inclusive, thought-provoking games and undertake tasks in order to complete Jigsaw pieces and puzzles.

Each class has it’s own Jigsaw mascot and energy chime, which we use every lesson.

Jigsaw is structured into 6 half-termly Puzzles with the whole school studying the same Puzzle at the same time.
