PSHE & Wellbeing

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.  


PSHE Scheme of Work

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:

  • Being Me in My World - Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community as well as devising Learning Charters.
  • Celebrating Difference  - Includes anti-bullying (cyber and homophobic bullying included) and diversity work
  • Dreams and Goals - Includes goal-setting, aspirations for yourself and the world and working together.
  • Healthy Me - Includes drugs and alcohol education, self-esteem and confidence as well as healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Relationships - Includes understanding friendship, family and other relationships, conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Changing Me - This puzzle includes sex and relationships education in the context of coping positively with change. (includes age-appropriate sex education)

PSHE Jigsaw Curriculum Overview


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. 





‘a state of mind in which an individual is able to realise his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.’

(The World Health Organisation 2010)


‘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
