PSHE Curriculum

PSHE at Harrow Lodge

At Harrow Lodge Primary we teach PSHE through the Jigsaw scheme in KS1 and KS2.

The Jigsaw approach is a comprehensive scheme of work which is underpinned by mindfulness. The meaning of mindfulness in this context is two-fold:

  • teaching information and skills to empower children to learn now and improve their life- chances later
  • aiming to help them develop personal awareness.


This enables them to observe their own thoughts and feelings, regulate them and make conscious decisions about their learning, behaviour and lives. It helps them to remain focused on the present moment and thrive in it.

Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (puzzle) at the same time.

The Six Puzzles are:

Autumn 1: Being Me in My World

Autumn 2: Celebrating Difference

Spring 1: Dreams and Goals

Spring 2: Healthy Me

Summer 1: Relationships

Summer 2: Changing me
