PSHE and RSE

Jigsaw PSHE

At Huckleberry Therapeutic School, we use a whole school PSHE scheme called Jigsaw. Jigsaw combines PSHE, 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. Jigsaw 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 six Puzzles (half-term units of work), each with six Pieces (lessons). Every year group studies the same Puzzle at the same time (in order from September to July), allowing for whole school themes. 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.

 

The different puzzle pieces are:

  • Being Me in My World
  • Celebrating Difference
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me

 

Relationships & Sex Education

An important part of the Jigsaw PSHE programme is delivered through the 'Relationships' and 'Changing Me' puzzle pieces, which are covered in the summer term. 

There are four main aims of teaching RSE:

• To enable children to understand and respect their bodies
• To help children develop positive and healthy relationships appropriate to their age and    development
• To support children to have positive self-esteem and body image
• To empower them to be safe and safeguarded

Each year group will be taught appropriate to their age and developmental stage.

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.
