At JHN, we recognise that personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE) enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.  By the time a child leaves JHN, they should:  have a high sense of well-being and their own personal development; be equipped with emotional and social skills to deal with challenges, be resilient in the face of setbacks; and to find their voice to communicate who they are and what they believe.


At JHN, we use the ‘Jigsaw’ PSHCE scheme of learning alongside other cross curricular activities to:

  • Help children develop their personal skills; to develop lively, enquiring minds with strong skills of communication so they can express themselves.
  • Help children to develop their social skills; to appreciate and be concerned about their relationships, environment and understand the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
  • Help children to develop their physical and mental health; to achieve self-discipline, resilience and an understanding of physical and mental fitness, so that they can reach the highest standards of which they are capable.
  • Help children to develop their understanding of citizenship, including British values such as democracy, and what it means to contribute and be a  responsible member of British society and our wider global society.

PSHCE, at John Henry Newman Academy, is taught using Jigsaw, ‘The Mindful approach in PSHE’.  Jigsaw is an integrated scheme of learning, for Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education, with particular emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health, Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) development.
With a strong emphasis on emotional literacy and nurturing mental health as the necessary underpinnings for learning, Jigsaw provides a firm foundation for children to learn key skills to help them be successful and resilient citizens. With mindfulness philosophy and practice woven throughout, Jigsaw is a unique, progressive and effective PSHCE scheme of work.
