Blaise Primary and Nursery School

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)

In PSHE at Blaise, learners develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for learners, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

In February 2019 the Department for Education launched statutory guidance to accompany introduction of compulsory health education, relationships education and relationships and sex education (RSE) in 2020.


At Blaise we teach PSHE through a scheme called Jigsaw.

The scheme is split into 6 puzzles (one per term)

  • Being Me in My World
  • Celebrating Difference (including Anti-Bullying)
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me 


Lessons are taught weekly and include circle time activities, class discussions and time to reflect. All lessons cover age appropriate topics.

Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

If you would like more information about the subject please pop in and make an appointment or check out the Jigsaw website

PSHE Education stands for PERSONAL, SOCIAL, HEALTH and ECONOMIC  Education. 

At Blaise we teach the majority of our PSHE lessons using the JIGSAW scheme. 


All year groups work on the same theme/puzzle at the same time.

The lessons are differentiated by year group to ensure the content is always age appropriate. 


Please look at the document below for more information about the subject and the JIGSAW scheme.

Puzzle 1 - Being Me in My World
