At Belgrave St Peter's C of E Primary School the children's social and emotional wellbeing is at the centre of everything we do.
At Belgrave, we use a progressive and fun scheme of work called 'Jigsaw'. ‘Jigsaw’ consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.
Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to Relationships and Health Education (PSHE) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.
Puzzles are launched with a whole-school assembly containing an original song, with each year group studying the same unit at the same time (at their own level), building sequentially through the school year, facilitating whole-school learning themes.
The various teaching and learning activities are engaging and mindful of different learning styles.
Jigsaw’s Units of Work (Puzzles) are:
PSHE development is not exclusive to PSHE lessons! It is woven through everything we do at Belgrave St. Peter's Primary School. We recognise that happy, healthy children are fantastic learners and we strive to ensure this for all of our children.
PSHE runs alongside the positive attitudes we aim to install through having a growth mindset. PSHE is also supported through character development and at the heart of character education is creating a culture in and out of school where pupils are given every opportunity to rehearse and strengthen their sense of themselves. Please see our ;growth mindset and character education' and 'wellbeing' sections for more information about how we support these areas in our school.
The photos below show some of the fantastic opportunities children have to support their wellbeing.

‘Health is the extent to which an individual or group is able, on one hand, to realise aspirations and satisfy needs and, on the other hand, to change or cope with the environment. Health is, therefore seen as a resource for everyday life, not an object of living; it is a positive concept emphasising social and personal resources, as well as physical capabilities.’ World Health Organisation (WHO), 2000
