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.
