Jigsaw PSHE is fully compliant with the DfE Statutory Relationships & Health Education Guidance. This document maps the guidance to Jigsaw by Year Group and Puzzle (unit of work) showing the depth and breadth of the curriculum coverage.
Following full consultation involving staff, governors, and parents/carers and outside agencies the policy is that aspects of relationships, i.e. family, friends, the community, respect for oneself and others, are covered within the PSHE & Citizenship curriculum.
Sex Education is addressed as part of the PSHE programme for pupils in Year 5 & Year 6. Children in these year groups are involved in a series of lessons led HH. Kids and supported by school staff. Parents are given the opportunity to view any materials to be used prior to these lessons and have the right to withdraw their child from them if they so wish.
