At Castleview Primary, we have introduced a whole school PSHE scheme called Jigsaw. Jigsaw combines personal, social and health education (PSHE), emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.
There are six Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with six Pieces (lessons). Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time, sequentially ordered from September to July. Each year group receives one PSHE lesson per week and all lessons are delivered in an age-appropriate and stage-appropriate way so that the children’s needs are met.
The Jigsaw Puzzle units are as follows:
Autumn 1: Being Me in My World
Autumn 2: Celebrating Differences
Spring 1: Dreams and Goals
Spring 2: Healthy Me
Summer 1: Relationships
Summer 2: Changing Me

The DfE have recently reinforced the need:
“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
In line with the with the Department for Education’s five-part definition, we promote the following British values at Castleview Primary School;
- The rule of law;
- Individual liberty;
- Mutual respect;
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
At Castleview, students will encounter these principles throughout everyday school life. In particular, our promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) understanding where these values are explicitly taught in a range of ways, through PSHE lessons (as explained above), Circle time and days such as ‘This is Me Day’ (promoting cultural diversity). Additionally, the values are taught through our R.E curriculum and interwoven within our creative curriculum.
