Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)

At Thwaites, we are proud to be developing and implementing our PSHE Curriculum through Coram Life Education's SCARF Framework. SCARF stands for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship, and alongside its Life Education Bus which visits us annually, is helping us provide a whole-school approach to promoting positive behaviour, mental health wellbeing, resilience and achievement.


Children's emotional health has a huge impact on their ability to learn. At Thwaites, we understand that positive attitudes and key skills such as resilience and perseverance, are essential in helping our children achieve their potential. Through our PSHE Curriculum, we aim to...


  • create a safe and nurturing environment for our children to thrive
  • provide a curriculum which gives our children the tools to cope and succeed
  • promote respect and value diversity
  • ensure all our children have a voice, and feel part of the school and wider community
  • equip staff to identify issues for our children
  • identify the needs of our children and monitor the impact and effectiveness of interventions to improve wellbeing, including specialist provision through support services
  • clearly promote emotional health and wellbeing in school
  • work with parents and carers to promote emotional health and wellbeing at home


Our PSHE lessons focus on the three themes of 'Health and Wellbeing', 'Relationships' and 'Living in the Wider World'. They provide a strong foundation for our children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) education and development, as well as contributing significantly to British Values, both explicitly and implicitly.
