We do this by using the SCARF Programme from Coram Life Education (CLE) and employing an excellent level of teaching staff who provide to the children who supply engaging and interesting lessons. PSHE is a popular subject amongst students because they explore real life issues of direct relevance to them and participate in active debate.
Our aspiration is that we aim for our children to be able to understand why they are being taught PSHE and be able to talk about their PSHE teaching - for example:
“When we are taught PSHE, Harold the Giraffe and his SCARF helps teach us lessons about Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship. We learn about PSHE in Reception to Year 6 and think about the health of our minds and bodies, relationships and living in the wider world.”
