At TGA we are using the programme SCARF to teach PSHCE. Each term we have a day dedicated to PSHCE. There are three themes; Health and wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the wider world. SCARF was created by teachers and is centred on a values-based and ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, SCARF’s online resources support primary schools like ours in promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.
There’s 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 our educational attainment.
PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizen Education) is at the heart of everything we stand for as a school; helping children learn to manage their lives both now and in the future. It is vital, in an ever-changing world, we equip the new generation with the skills and knowledge they will need to become the best they can be throughout later life.
Within all subjects we are working on building our children’s resilience to challenge and for them to be able to recognise how to challenge themselves. This strand of personal development is critical for the future generations to develop self-confidence and awareness.
