PSHE Curriculum Intent Statement


The purpose of PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) at Crawshawbooth Primary School is to allow our children to learn and develop key life skills which will enable them to become caring, confident and informed citizens of the future. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


At Crawshawbooth, PSHE is taught using a comprehensive scheme of work called SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) which is a whole-school approach that promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. It meets the requirements of the suggested programme of study by the PSHE Association.


We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse and multicultural society. Teaching and learning about protected characteristics is fully integrated into the curriculum to enable children to gain an understanding of the world they are growing up in, and learn how to live alongside, and show respect for, a diverse range of people. As well as the statutory Relationships and Health Education, our curriculum prepares children for life in modern Britain by promoting the values of equality and diversity, teaching about democracy and the rule of law, the importance of good physical and mental health, and economic education as well as basic first aid skills.


PSHE is incorporated throughout school life. It is taught discretely each week and also through whole-school activities. PSHE is also linked to a selection of other subjects, such as Computing, Science, RE and PE, to ensure that the personal development of our children is at the heart of all that we do.
