PSHE – Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
As an inspiring relational school our approach to teaching and learning is driven by our school ethos, vision and values.
We appreciate that teaching of PSHE can not be effective if delivered in isolation by standalone lessons, rather that is a way of ‘being’ that is embedded in all that we do – every single interaction. We pride ourselves on modelling the behaviours we value, in particular a readiness to learn, respect and kindness.
Through our holistic, child-centred approach we ensure that every child is equipped to face the challenges of the modern world and make a positive contribution to society.
We are proud to use Coram’s Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship (SCARF) programme to support our PSHE teaching. This whole-school approach embodies our values as well as meets the statutory Relationships and Health Education requirements.
The positive impact of mental wellbeing on behaviour and learning is at the forefront of our teaching and whole-school approach.
"Such an approach moves beyond learning and teaching to pervade all aspects of the life of a school, and had been found to be effective in bringing about and sustaining health benefits." Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing, Public Health England
The SCARF program is delivered in six developmentally, age appropriate modules across the year with numerous cross curricular consolidation opportunities.
