At James Dixon, we take a mindful approach to PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) which includes the statutory RSHE (Relationship Education, Sex Education and Health Education). There is a strong focus on emotional and mental health and wellbeing.


Through the use of the Jigsaw scheme, we teach children and young adults emotional literacy, social and life long skills and resilience in an age appropriate manner. The programme equips them for happier and healthier lives, giving them agency to make their way through the world. 


Our overall aim is for children to be safe, healthy and happy. James Dixon is always respectful of the faith, beliefs and contexts of children’s families; engaging with parents and carers on this key subject.


Jigsaw holds children at its heart, and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
