Curriculum Rationale

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)


There is 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. 


To ensure we deliver a effective PSHE programme & cover DfE Relationships Education and Health Education requirements we use SCARF


Centred on the ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, SCARF  promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.


Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all, or part of the Relationships Education curriculum, except for those parts included within the National Curriculum (Science) and from September 2019 that which falls under the new requirements for Primary Schools.



Dr Tom introduced us to four Gem Powers which help us to be kind, stay focused, bounce back, have courage & be resilient:

"I find the reading method to be excellent. Overall the way school is managed shows you care

about children. Keep up the good work" - Parent Survey Nov 2018
