    Health and Wellbeing at Sacred Heart


    At Sacred Heart, the education of the whole child is paramount. Our vision for our school is to be ‘outstanding in all areas of learning, pastoral care and faith formation. We aim to nurture a love of learning, with Jesus at the heart of all we do.’ Our School Development Plan objective 2 aims for ‘Excellence in wellbeing and personal development’.  We aim to support and nurture this through:

    • Our PSHE Curriculum – Jigsaw
    • Specialist workshops and assemblies throughout the year
    • Dedicated Wellbeing Week and Anti-Bullying Week each year
    • Our Family Liaison Officer
    • Our School Nurse
    • Mental Health Trailblazer Partnership with the NHS
    • Education Wellbeing Partners (EWPs)

    PSHE Curriculum

    Weekly PSHE lessons follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme which offers a whole school approach to Personal, Social and Health Education, emotional literacy, social skills, mindfulness and spiritual development.  Please visit our PSHE page for further information and links to the Jigsaw Scheme of Learning.

    Specialist Assemblies and Workshops

    Throughout the year, we welcome visitors such as ex-professional footballers, charities and NHS Education Wellbeing Partners to lead assemblies or workshops on anxiety, resilience and healthy bodies and healthy minds.


    Each year, we dedicate a week to Wellbeing. We learn about how to keep our bodies and minds healthy with diet, exercise and wellbeing. We also dedicate a week to Anti-Bullying where lessons focus on strengthening friendships and celebrating differences.


    If you or someone you know can help with any wellbeing initiatives, activities or workshops, please contact your child’s class teacher or PSHE Lead.
