At Peaslake we have chosen to use the Jigsaw Mindful scheme for our pupils PSHE. The school wide approach is rooted in mindfulness practice. It meets the statutory RSHE requirements but also develops educational outcomes alongside improving mental health and safeguarding of all. We believe that this compliments are curriculum aims and school vision.

It nurtures children to become confident and successful, increasing their capacity to learn and preparing them for the challenges of the modern world. 

It is developed by teachers and wellbeing experts to develop emotional intelligence and life skills.
