At Warbstow, we follow Coram Life Education’s SCARF which is a value-based scheme of work focusing on the emotional health and well-being of individuals through a cross-curricular approach. Pupils enjoy practical and thought-provoking lessons which encourage them to share their own thoughts and views as well as listening to those of their peers about a wide range of topics as they link their own experiences to understanding the world around them.
SCARF lessons are designed to enhance pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development as well as their knowledge and understanding of British Values; democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. SCARF also includes lessons to deliver statutory Relationships Education.
As a school, and part of Aspire Academy Trust, we promote Trauma Informed practices and have two Trauma Informed Practitioners who support children, their families and colleagues.
