Our ultimate goal at Curdridge Primary School is that every child should be equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to manage their lives now and in the future.
A high quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education curriculum is a vital part of their development.
At Curdridge Primary school we use SCARF, a comprehensive scheme of work for PSHE and wellbeing education that also covers all of the DfE's new statutory requirements for Relationships Education and Health Education, including non-statutory Sex Education.
Class teachers follow the suggested six half termly units provided by SCARF for each year.
The themed units are:
1. Me and My Relationships: includes content on feelings, emotions, conflict resolution and friendships;
2. Valuing Difference: a focus on respectful relationships and British values;
3. Keeping Myself Safe: looking at keeping ourselves healthy and safe
4. Rights and Responsibilities: learning about money, living in the wider world and the environment;
5. Being My Best: developing skills in keeping healthy, developing a growth mindset (resilience), goal-setting and achievement;
6. Growing and Changing: finding out about the human body, the changes that take place from birth to old age and being safe.
Children are encouraged to engage in activities that promote an understanding of themselves as growing and changing individuals, and as members of a wider community, based on their own first hand experiences. These activities also encourage pupils to understand how their choices and behaviours can affect others.
Below you will find our long term overview for PSHE and examples of SCARF plans, taken from the unit 'Valuing difference'.
