At St Joseph's, we deliver our PSHE through a scheme of work called "JIGSAW."

Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive scheme of work for the whole Primary School from the EYFS through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.

SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in the world.

     Worry Boxes

At St Josephs, we know that life can sometimes be tricky and that it can make us all feel sad, lonely, worried, nervous, as well as lots of other emotions. It is OK to be worried about things, and sometimes talking about a worry helps.

In each class we have a worry box which has been decorated by the children. Our pupils know they can use the worry box to share any problems or worries that might be bothering them. The boxes are checked daily and the children are reassured to know that an adult will find time to talk to them about their worry that day, if they wish to discuss it.

KS2 also have access to an online worry box linked to our school website.


In our early years class, the children made a set of worry dolls.
