PSHE in our school is taught through SCARF
There's now a proven link between pupils' health and wellbeing, and their academic progress. Crucial skills and positive attitudes developed through comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) are critical to ensuring children are effective learners.
At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery we use the online resource - SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship). SCARF provides a whole-school approach to building these essential foundations – crucial for children to achieve their best, academically and socially. Mapped to the PSHE Association programme of study, SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, resilience, safety, achievement, mental health and wellbeing. SCARF gives our children everything they need to meet the new Relationships Education and Health Education requirements.
SCARF - Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience & Friendship
Each value is linked to a colour on the scarves worn by Harold the giraffe and his friends, and which everyone in school can wrap around themselves either in reality or in their imaginations, reminding them to put the SCARF values into action. The SCARF values are brought to life through stories of Harold and his friends, songs, films, and thought-provoking and fun activities.
