At Reigate Priory School, we are proud to teach Jigsaw PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Economic). Jigsaw is a mindful and child-centred approach to PSHE. It is an original and comprehensive scheme of learning which integrates personal, social, health and economic education with emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural), especially spiritual development.
Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

British Values Within PSHE
Jigsaw PSHE helps promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) Within PSHE
Jigsaw PSHE actively promotes children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development.
At Reigate Priory School, we believe children should understand the facts about human reproduction before they leave primary school so, following the Jigsaw scheme, each Year Group between 4 - 6 will have some Sex Education lessons with PSHE. Reigate Priory has decided to teach Sex Education as part of PSHE; it is within the parents’ rights to request your child to be excused from that area of the curriculum. Parents should note that Puberty is a part of statutory Health Education so parents can not withdraw their child from this learning. We define Sex Education as understanding human reproduction. We intend to teach this as part of the Changing Me Puzzle.
