It is our intent that personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community so that they develop life-long skills.
At Whitemoor we use the SCARF PSHE scheme.
SCARF provides a comprehensive spiral curriculum for PSHE education, including mental health and wellbeing. It also meets all of the statutory requirements for September 2020 regarding Health and Relationships Education.
Using SCARF across all age groups ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values, and skills – including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children.
We follow SCARF on a rolling programme due to our mixed aged classes. Below are the progression documents for each of the six units. These outline the specific learning taking place in each year group and demonstrates what PSHE looks like at Whitemoor.
