At Harold Wood Primary School we promote social and emotional literacy in children and are dedicated to equipping them with the skills they need to lead a healthy, happy life. 


Our PSHE curriculum is based on the Jigsaw approach to teaching PSHE. 

which supports children with:

  • social awareness
  • managing feelings
  • motivation
  • empathy
  • social interactions.


Through Jigsaw based activities we aim to help children become successful learners, responsible citizens and confident individuals.


The framework is divided into six themes to be covered within a school year:


Autumn 1:

Being Me in My World

Includes understanding my place in the class, school and global community as well as devising Learning Charters
