Edale Rise Primary and Nursery School


At Edale Rise Primary and Nursery School, we acknowledge the importance of providing a curriculum for Personal, Social and Health Education. Through it, we aim to reflect and support the guidance given in the home and through the wider local and global communities. Our programme of PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society, who are able to make choices and appreciate the diverse multi-cultural society we live in.

At Edale Rise we use ‘SCARF’ (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, and Friendship) Education to deliver our PSHE sessions. This includes the new statutory ‘RHE’ (Relationship and Health Education) curriculum by the DFE and meets all OFSTED and PSHE association of study requirements. This is taught through discrete weekly lessons, assemblies, themed weeks/days and through cross-curricular elements with other subjects.

SCARF covers the fundamentals of relationships, health and wellbeing, and drug education through interactive and creative lessons which stimulate curiosity, discussions, empathy which are vital for children to achieve their best academically and socially.

We have yearly visits from the SCARF educators on ‘life space’. This is an interactive workshop to discuss healthy lifestyle choices and takes a closer look at the vital parts of the human organs and their functions from Nursery to Year 3 which are age appropriate. Year 4 receive a workshop on ‘internet safety’ and years 5 & 6 receive a ‘puberty workshop’ and changes of the body.

If you would like further information into our PSHE/RHE curriculum please see the links below and you will be able to read our lesson overviews, policies and terminology for years 1 to 6.
