PSHE at Newfield
Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education supports children and young people to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives – now and in the future. PSHE education also develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

We also provide high-quality pastoral support so each child feels safe, happy, involved in the school community and are able to achieve the very best that they can. Supporting pupils' mental health and well-being is central to the school's ethos and provision. To find out more about how we support pupils personal development please click here.
Jigsaw PSHE Curriculum
At Newfield, we are proud to teach Jigsaw PSHE. Jigsaw is a mindful and child-centred approach to teaching PSHE. It is a comprehensive scheme of learning which integrates personal, social, health and economic education with emphasis on emotional literacy, mental health and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural 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 and provide children with opportunities to develop their emotional intelligence and life skills.
Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.
