What does PSHE look like at Irlam Primary School?
At Irlam Primary School, we have always recognised the crucial role that PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) plays in the education and wellbeing of all of our children. It has always been an integral part of our curriculum, taught as both stand-alone sessions and also through cross curricular learning.
We will now also be delivering the governments new statutory ‘Relationships and Sex Education’ (RSE) and ‘Health Education’. This new curriculum will be delivered within PSHE lessons.
In order to ensure that all of the statutory requirements are covered throughout school in a sensitive and age-appropriate way, we are now going to be basing our lessons around an online scheme of work provided by 'Coram Life Education' called 'SCARF' (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship). This scheme does not only ensure that the statutory objectives are taught but it also combines them with additional PSHE objectives, ensuring that our children are given the tools that they need to become lifelong learners and acquire personal skills and attributes to help them in their future lives.
