Oxenhope CE Primary School

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Our intent for personal, social, health, education (PSHE) at Oxenhope is that we give children the knowledge and understanding about themselves, the modern world around them, safety, and the future, to allow them to make informed choices.

The subject leader for PSHE is Mrs Alice Jones

Our PSHE curriculum covers many aspects of safeguarding including relationships education, online safety, anti-bullying, behaviour education, mental health and growing up.

Our curriculum includes SCARF, a comprehensive, fully resourced, progressive PSHE scheme of work which feature high-quality, educator-led workshops for pupils, CPD for staff, truly supporting the school with a whole-school approach to wellbeing and mental health. Our vision is for all children to acquire the life skills needed to thrive.

SCARF – Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship

SCARF’s whole-school approach supports primary schools in promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement – giving us everything we need to meet the new Relationships Education and Health Education statutory requirements. More than just a PSHE scheme of work, SCARF supports great learning every day. SCARF represents our values for children of Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.

Meeting all DfE requirements for statutory Relationships and Health Education, and mapped to the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study, SCARF is a framework consisting of lesson plans, online planning, assessment, and Ofsted tools to give teachers skills and confidence to embed a comprehensive Relationships and Health Education, PSHE Education and Wellbeing programme throughout the primary years. SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement, and wellbeing.
