We are proud to say that at St. Matthew's we use Jigsaw, the mindful approach to RHE, and that it fulfils all the requirements for the statutory Relationships and Health Education curriculum, as announced by the Department for Education in England in 2019, for full implementation from September 2020.

The Six Puzzles (Themes/Units of work)
There are six Puzzles in Jigsaw that are designed to progress in sequence from the start of each
academic year:

Term 1: Being Me in My World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing Me (including Sex Education)

Each Puzzle has six Pieces (lessons) which work towards an ‘end product’, for example, The School Learning Charter or The Garden of Dreams and Goals.


Each Piece has two Learning Intentions: one is based on specific RSE learning and one is based on emotional literacy and social skills development . The whole school works on the same Puzzle at the same time, meaning that each Puzzle can be launched as a school and learning can be celebrated by the whole school in a meaningful way.
