At Dunstall Hill Primary School (DHPS), personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is at the heart of our school ethos. Our policy reflects DHPS overarching curriculum intent in supporting our children to become healthy and responsible members of society, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.

Relationships Education

Relationships Education is complemented through an online resource called ‘SCARF’ (Coram Life Education). Coram Life Education takes a three strand approach addressing children’s knowledge, skills and attitudes, and programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum (Citizenship, PSHE Education), covering all Key Stages. Coram Life Education helps schools meet their statutory requirements for Relationships and Health Education, children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, and Ofsted inspection criteria for personal development, behaviour and welfare.

Meeting all DfE requirements for statutory Relationships and Health Education, and mapped to the PSHE Association programmes of study, SCARF is a framework consisting of lesson plans, online planning, assessment and Ofsted tools to give teachers skills and confidence to embed a comprehensive RSHE, PSHE and Wellbeing programme throughout the primary years. SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement and wellbeing.
