At Kiwi primary School we use a scheme called SCARF for our PHSE lessons. 

What is Whole-school SCARF?

Whole-school SCARF is a comprehensive toolkit to support PSHE leaders and SLTs in ensuring a whole-school approach to children's mental health and wellbeing. 

Why Whole-school SCARF?

There's a clear link between children's mental and physical wellbeing, and their attainment. A whole-school approach to mental wellbeing, involving teachers, pupils and parents/carers working together impacts strongly on pupils' wellbeing, behaviour and learning. Further evidence of this is provided by PHE (now the Health Security Agency) in their publication Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing: A whole school and college approach.

"Such an approach moves beyond learning and teaching to pervade all aspects of the life of a school, and had been found to be effective in bringing about and sustaining health benefits." Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing, Public Health England

What's in Whole-school SCARF?

Whole-school SCARF builds on the SCARF values of Safety, Caring Achievement, Resilience and Friendship, with a comprehensive and flexible toolkit to help strengthen your school's approach to pupil and staff mental wellbeing.  Whether you're new to SCARF or already using it, this toolkit will help you to keep children in your school safe, mentally well, ready for learning and able to develop the skills needed to grow into caring, respectful citizens who can achieve their full potential.
