Please refer to our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy for more information. The Jigsaw PSHE guidance for parents/carers shows how our PSHE curriculum actively promotes positive mental health and wellbeing and develops strategies, vocabulary and knowledge progressively across school.

We aim to promote the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ as evidence suggests that there are five steps that you can take to improve your overall mental health and wellbeing. These five steps are : Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give, Take Notice.


They help people take care of their mental health and wellbeing. Regularly practising the Five Ways is beneficial for everyone – whether you have a mental health problem or not.


Why the 5 Ways work:

  • Connect: Strengthening relationships with others and feeling close to and valued by others, including at work, is critical to boosting wellbeing.
  • Keep Learning: Being curious and seeking out new experiences at work and in life more generally positively stimulates the brain.
  • Be Active: Being physically active, including at work, improves physical health and can improve mood and wellbeing and decrease stress, depression and anxiety.
  • Give: Carrying out acts of kindness, whether small or large, can increase happiness, life satisfaction and general sense of wellbeing.
  • Take Notice: Paying more attention to the present moment, to thoughts and feelings and to the world around, boosts our wellbeing.
