Spiritual, Moral, Social,
& Cultural Understanding
Welcome to SMSC at Featherstone Academy.
Jigsaw is a PSHE Scheme of Work that provides a mindful approach, and is the programme we use here at Featherstone Academy.
Jigsaw is more than a PSHE Scheme of Work. It provides a structured programme of personal development to nurture the 'whole child' and increase learning capacity, underpinned by mindfulness philosophy and practice.
Every Jigsaw lesson from EYFS to Year 6 offers opportunities for children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, and this is clearly mapped and balanced across each year group.
Likewise, Jigsaw is designed to provide structured opportunities in every lesson to practise and enhance the five skills associated with the emotional literacy (self-awareness, social skills, empathy, motivation and managing feelings). At Featherstone Academy, we believe that these opportunities are vital for children's development, their understanding of themselves and others and in increasing their capacity to learn.
