PHSE

PHSE (Personal, Health and Social Education) is an important part of our school curriculum.  It helps children to develop the skills they need to form and keep healthy relationships; to value themselves and others; to resolve conflict and disagreements; to keep themselves safe and healthy through making good decisions about healthy eating, online safety, exercise, sleep and many other aspects of their day-to-day lives.  PHSE also includes our Relationships and Sex education, which teaches children about changes to their own bodies, healthy relationships and, in an age-appropriate way, how babies are made.  At Great Tey, Relationships and Sex education is taught from a Christian perspective of loving relationships

PHSE is taught through an online curriculum called Coram Life SCARF.  SCARF stands for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.  It is taught on a two-year cycle, focusing on aspects such as Me and My Relationships; Valuing Difference; Keeping Myself Safe; Rights and Responsibilities, Being My Best; Growing and Changing.  Our aim is to help children develop the decision-making skills necessary to live safe and fulfilling lives.  A parent information sheet about SCARF can be found here.  PHSE is an important but non-statutory curriculum subject - Government guidance on PHSE can be found here.
