At Wescott we use SCARF to teach PSHE because it offers a comprehensive programme for Primary PSHE including statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work. It gives children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others. SCARF also has a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience through growth mindset and nurturing mental and physical health. SCARF lessons include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

PSHE at Wescott

At Wescott, we believe that delivering a high quality PSHE curriculum is vital in providing children with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals within the community.

PSHE enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. We teach pupils about their rights and respecting the rights of others. We help them understand their responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.

Our PHSE curriculum promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement allowing each individual to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes such as confidence, resilience, self-esteem, team work and kindness, that they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. We will empower them to identify and manage risk, make safe, informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. The children will also learn the importance of staying healthy and active; making time for their own emotional wellbeing.

At Wescott, we believe teaching a growth mindset is crucial for our children; allowing children to achieve their best, academically and socially, and believe that with hard work, a positive mental attitude and resilience “anything is possible!”
