Personal, Social & Health Education at Beedon CE Primary



Our PSHE sessions are taught weekly by every class, as part of the SCARF scheme of work. Our programme is taught over a 2 year rolling cycle of six themed units providing a complete PSHE and wellbeing curriculum, including mental health and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), along with related assessment tools. Each themed unit is taught in a developmentally appropriate way and in a manner that allows pupils to make connections and develop upon their learning from previous years.

All pupils have a right to feel safe at school and to learn. Our school adopts a therapeutic approach to recognising and rewarding positive behaviour and achievements. We are committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


If you were to walk into PSHE lessons at Beedon CE Primary School, you would see:

  • Positive attitude towards PSHE.
  • Pupils feel safe and confident to explore their own values, beliefs and feelings.
  • Inclusive, stimulating and purposeful learning environment.
  • Trusting relationships that enable children to express their feelings and opinions.
  • Continuity of learning between year groups – each class will be exploring the same themed unit each half term, in a way that is appropriate for their year group. This encourages connections to be made for the children between their previous and current learning.
  • Age appropriate sex and relationships education

Relationships and sex education

Following the return to school after the Coronovirus lockdown in March 2021, our school has invested in a new scheme of work called SCARF to help our children with their recovery curriculum.  PSHE is taught every Monday morning and allows children time to talk about their feelings and to build their skills.  The RSE element of our curriculum is taught in the "Growing and Changing" unit of work.  Parents and carers have the opportunity to consult with the school about our RSE policy and have the opportunity to view resources before the unit is taught.
