At Whitemoor, we believe that resilience, emotional awareness and health should be intertwined throughout all aspects of school life. Our school values: Aspiration, Passion, Resilience and Respect are at the heart of our school curriculum to ensure that they are instilled in our children for life.
It is our intent that PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society, giving them an understanding of how to play a positive role in the wider community and enabling them to develop life-long skills.
We aim to help children to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
At Whitemoor we use the SCARF PSHE scheme.
Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.
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 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.
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.
