At Oak Farm School PSHE education is a programme of learning through which our pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
PSHE education equips pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing.
Our PSHE programme has three Core Themes that are used to develop knowledge, understanding, language, skills and strategies. These Core Themes are:
- Health and Well-Being
- Living in the Wider World.
For 2020-21 we are using the Coram SCARF scheme of work. This builds upon the PSHE work already covered in the infants who follow the same scheme.
