Our intention is that when our children leave Forest Fields Primary, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotional intelligence to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being.
Our PSHE curriculum (SCARF) is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need for life. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. PSHE contributes to personal development by helping children and young people to build their personal identities, confidence and self-esteem and understand what influences their decisions. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. Our Relationships and Sex Education enables our children to learn how to be safe, and to understand and develop healthy relationships, both now and in their future lives.
