The Brent Primary


At the Brent we have a whole school approach.

Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE is a teaching and learning programme which includes the statutory RSHE (Relationships Education, Sex Education and Health Education) and has a strong focus on emotional and mental health and wellbeing.

We use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work to support our lessons, taking into consideration our school ethos, pupils needs and SMSC. Our weekly Jigsaw lessons focus around circle time, stories and class discussions. These lessons support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviours which enables our children to:

  • Have a sense of purpose
  • Value self and others
  • Form relationships
  • Make and act on informed decisions
  • Communicate effectively
  • Work with others
  • Respond to challenge
  • Be active citizens in the local community
  • Understand similarities and differences between people and families
  • Become healthy and fulfilled individuals

Jigsaw Themes

Each term the whole school focuses on the same theme (puzzle).

Term 1:  Being Me In My World A
Term 2:  Celebrating Difference
Term 3:  Dreams and Goals
Term 4:  Healthy Me
Term 5:  Relationships
Term 6:  Changing Me

Every week there is a whole school Jigsaw question, this is shared with the class during their Jigsaw lessons and in the weekly Jigsaw assembly. The question is also displayed around the school and posted on the school website to allow discussions to continue at home. The following week in the Jigsaw assembly each class awards a certificate to a peer who has demonstrated the week's focus.
