PSHEE encompasses all areas designed to promote children’s personal, social, health and economic development. At Fitzmaurice, PSHEE aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
At Fitzmaurice we follow the SCARF PSHEE program, which is a whole school approach that provides a scheme of learning from the Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 2. SCARF, standing for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship is centred on a values based, ‘Growth Mindset’ approach and is divided into six units. The units are tailored to each year group under the following themes:
PSHEE is taught each morning, with circle time, debate and discussion all strategies used to deliver lessons. During the daily PSHEE lesson children and staff are able to consider the schools behaviour blueprint and how our relationships impact on each other, our own mindset and our achievements. We have visitors to enhance children’s learning when appropriate.
