Jigsaw RSE


RSE at Ashbrow

Our PSHE scheme in school is Jigsaw, a mindful approach to PSHE which integrates personal, social, health and economic education with an emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and SMSC. Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

Through our Jigsaw programme, we aim to provide children with solid learning opportunities whilst improving their emotional well-being and mental health. PSHE at Ashbrow intends to help pupils see themselves as positive human beings and well-rounded global citizens through sharing cultures and growing empathy ready for life in modern Britain.


RSE (Relationships & Sex Education)

At Ashbrow, we are lucky enough to have been an early adopter of the new RSE guidelines which means we have had a year to fine tune the curriculum and ensure it is age and developmentally appropriate for our pupils.

It is at our best interests to ensure pupils receive the well-rounded PSHE knowledge they are currently offered in addition to extra topics such as sun safety and mental health awareness. The Jigsaw curriculum has been updated to meet government guidelines and updates will continually be accepted and used at Ashbrow.

As we move forward and continually monitor our curriculum, we welcome suggestions and questions from our school community. Please do not hesitate to get in touch regarding PSHE in school.
