PSHE/RSE 2020-2021

Curriculum Intent

We aim to provide/promote pupils understanding of life and give them a sense of self-worth; playing a positive role within school and the wider community enabling pupils to develop life-long skills.

Providing opportunities to learn about:

  • rights and responsibilities
  • personal development, resilience, self-esteem and making choices and to understand what influences their decisions               
  • identities and strength of character through the understanding of differences and change
  • managing emotions and communicating constructively through a variety of mediums, allowing the pupil to develop an understanding and ability to work with others to form a positive relationship
  • preparing each pupil for future life and equipping them with the necessary life-skills
  • raising aspirations and self-belief


At St Stephen Churchtown Academy, we use the Scarf scheme of work which stands for:


                                            Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.

SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement and wellbeing – crucial for children to achieve their best, academically and socially. 

In school we aim to deliver an intensive curriculum following six units of study - each unit is revisited each year to enable progression in skills, knowledge and understanding.

  • Me and My Relationship
  • Valuing Difference
  • Keeping Myself Safe
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Being My Best
  • Growing and Changing

By applying SCARF across all year groups, this ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values and skills; including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children.
