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 them all too develop life-long skills.


Encouraging opportunities to learn about:

  • rights and responsibilities
  • allowing children to contribute to personal development, resilience, self-esteem and making choices and understand what influences their decisions               
  • by strengthening their identities through the understanding of differences and change
  • manage emotions and communicates constructively through a variety of settings allowing the pupil to develop an understanding and ability to work with others to form a positive relationship
  • preparing each pupil an understanding of life ahead
  • preparing them for their future


At Sandy Hill we use the Scarf scheme of work which stands for: 

                                    Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.

Providing a strong, tangible framework; promoting positive ethos and values throughout all lessons encouraging all children to strive in achieving their best. It provides a healthy outlook towards life, promoting respect, caring attitudes and celebrates differences, providing a safe environment for children to be confident and successful learners.

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 ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values and skills; including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children.
