Our PSHE programme of study – SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) aims to equip our pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.

Our curriculum intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that foster pupils’ knowledge and skills necessary to grow personally and socially, to protect and enhance their wellbeing, to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, who are able to responsibly contribute to our diverse society.

SCARF promotes a deep understanding of British Values, developing appreciation of others and their value in society, as well as build positive views of themselves, so as to develop their self-worth, a strong sense of identity and become confident citizens by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

All the topics support social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide all pupils with appropriate and essential safeguarding knowledge to enable them to know they can ask for help.

The SCARF programme of study is fully in line with the learning outcomes and core themes of the PSHE Association scheme of work. It covers all the required objectives and follows the three core areas of Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. It also fulfils the requirements of the 2020 Statutory Relationship and Health Education which enables all pupils to build good, safe and healthy relationships now and in their future lives.


SEX EDUCATION: The content of the Sex Education Syllabus is drawn in accordance with the Local Authority’s guidelines and with the approval of the school governors. Sex Education is delivered informally as part of our teaching on Health, Personal and Social Education and National Curriculum Science. Staff will respond sensitively and appropriately to any enquiries from the children.


Lessons in each class take place weekly as well as being incorporated into our assembly themes. Drama games, role play, whole class discussion, small group discussion, videos and stories are all used to broach each different area of learning.

We use the Coram Life Education – SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship  programme to deliver our RSHE & PSHE Curriculum.  See more at
