SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship

At Keighley St. Andrew's we use the SCARF programme of learning to develop our children's understanding of staying safe, caring for others, resilience and relationships.

The programme is centred on a values-based and ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, which promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. More than just a PSHE scheme of work, SCARF supports great learning every day.

There is a proven link between pupils' health and wellbeing, and their academic progress. Crucial skills and positive attitudes developed through comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) are critical to ensuring children are effective learners.

SCARF provides a whole-school approach to building these essential foundations – crucial for children to achieve their best, academically and socially.

SCARF lesson plans are organised around the PSHE Association's Programmes of Study Learning Opportunities.

There are 6 units that we follow which are:

Unit 1 = Me and My Relationships

Unit 2 = Valuing Difference

Unit 3 = Keeping Myself Safe

Unit 4 = Rights and Responsibilities

Unit 5 = Being My Best

Unit 6 = Growing and Changing
