At Padstow School we use the SCARF scheme of work which stands for:
Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.
SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement and wellbeing – crucial for children to achieve their best, academically and socially.
Providing a strong, tangible framework; promoting positive ethos and values throughout all lessons encouraging all children to strive in achieving their best. It provides a healthy outlook towards life, promoting respect, caring attitudes and celebrates differences, providing a safe environment for children to be confident and successful learners.
In school we aim to deliver an intensive curriculum following six units of study - each unit is revisited each year to enable progression in skills, knowledge and understanding.
- Me and My Relationship
- Valuing Difference
- Keeping Myself Safe
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Being My Best
- Growing and Changing
By applying SCARF across all year groups ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values and skills; including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children.
