Curriculum Lead Alicia Ketteringham McCourt


At Howard Junior School, we follow a comprehensive and informative RSHE curriculum using the 'Jigsaw' scheme of work.

It is a mindful approach to RSHE which brings together Personal, Social, Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. A lesson a week with the teaching resources included, helps teachers to focus on tailoring the lessons to their children’s needs and to enjoy building the relationship with their class, getting to know them better as unique human beings.

Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time.

We are strong believers in ensuring learning is consolidated through providing opportunities for the children to experience many enriching and relevant school trips; to ultimately inspire and stimulate.
