What is Jigsaw PSHE?
At Longmoor we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work. Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Foundation Stages 1 and 2 through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in the world.
Jigsaw contributes, to the British Values agenda very significantly, both through the direct teaching of information and through the experiential learning children will enjoy.
The 5 strands of the British Values agenda have been mapped across every Puzzle and every Piece (lesson).
Jigsaw assemblies begin each puzzle so the whole school follow the same theme. We are proud of the way we promote emotional well-being for all our pupils through our Jigsaw programme, which underpins the whole of our curriculum.
Puzzle 1 - Being Me In My World
Puzzle 2 - Celebrating Difference
Puzzle 3 - Dreams and Goals
Puzzle 4 - Healthy Me
Puzzle 5 - Relationships
Puzzle 6 - Changing Me
At Longmoor we don’t want anyone to be a victim of Bullying. We understand that Bullying can have a profound affect on children's emotional well-being and mental health and Bullying will not be tolerated at our school. As part of our PSHE curriculum and through recognising the annual National Anti-Bullying Week we work hard to help the children understand issues surrounding Bullying. If you feel that you are being bullied, please tell an adult straight away.
At School you can tell…
- A friend
- A teacher
- A teaching assistant
- A lunchtime supervisor
- The Headteacher
When you tell someone about Bullying, they can then help you to sort your problem out.
So what is bullying?
Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group. Bullying can be verbal, physical, psychological and online. Bullying is not tolerated at our school.
Anti- Bullying Week: 11th - 15th November 2019
This year's Anti Bullying Week is 11th - 15th November 2019 and the theme is 'Change Starts With Us'. We will also be participating in 'Odd Socks' Day on Tuesday 12th November which promotes everyone being unique. The children will be completing Anti-Bullying activities during this week.
In November 2018, Longmoor Primary School took part in the National Anti-Bullying week, this year the theme of the campaign was called 'Choose Respect'. To kick start the week there was an Anti-Bullying assembly for the whole school to introduce the theme. During the week, the children completed a range of Anti-Bullying activities, some of which were completed with parents in our parent open mornings.

At Longmoor we encourage all our children to adopt healthy lifestyles. We deliver 2 hours physical activity each week. Alongside this we encourage all children to drink water in class, have a good breakfast every day, give free fruit to all children and offer a healthy hot lunch prepared in our own kitchen. We also have active breaks during afternoons.
We work closely with a variety of agencies to deliver health messages as part of our curriculum.
We have received the Healthy Schools Award.
Our aim is to support children and young people to grow healthily, safely and responsibly and to become active citizens who do their bit for society and for the environment.
A healthy school:
