Curriculum Intent

It is our aim that by the time the children leave Rosedale  to embark on the next stage of their education, they are equipped with the academic skills and knowledge, and have developed the personal attributes needed to enable them to become successful citizens of the future.


Jigsaw Curriculum

Jigsaw 3-11 offers a comprehensive Programme for Primary PSHE, including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.

Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.

  • Autumn 1: Being Me in My World
  • Autumn 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
  • Spring 1: Dreams and Goals
  • Spring 2: Healthy Me
  • Summer 1: Relationships
  • Summer 2: Changing Me (including Sex Education)

Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) (in purple) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills (in green).


Safeguarding & Consent

As part of the Jigsaw programme, aspects of consent are both implicitly and explicitly taught.
