Personal, Social, Health and Citizen Education

Our aim, at Temple Grove Academy (TGA), is that children leave with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive, and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible, if they put their mind to it.

At TGA we follow the SCARF PSHE programme, which is a whole school approach that provides a scheme of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to, and including, Year 6.

It was created by teachers and is centered on a value based, ‘Growth Mindset’ approach. SCARF’s online resources support primary schools like TGA in promoting behavior, mental health, wellbeing, resilience, and achievement.

The scheme is divided into three themes:

  1. Health and Wellbeing
  2. Relationships
  1. Living in the wider world

There is 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 (PSHCE) are critical to ensuring children are effective learners. We recognise how important these skills and attitudes are in unlocking our pupils’ potential, helping to raise achievement, and closing the gap in educational attainment.
