Uplands Primary School


"PSHE education is a school curriculum subject in England that helps children and young people stay healthy, safe and prepared for life – and work – in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential."

- The PSHE Association

We focus on elements of personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education both in the high quality lessons we teach, as well as throughout our daily routines. We encourage open discussions and debates, in which children are able to ask questions and feel comfortable to challenge ideas, as they develop their understanding of various issues. We help pupils to learn about their own personal development. Children in our school learn to care for others, to be generous, kind and respectful. We strongly believe that good experience in personal relationships in early life will make a most important contribution to an understanding of moral and spiritual values when they are older.


We use a scheme called SCARF to support our PSHE curriculum. SCARF stands for: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship - all of which we value highly at Uplands Community Primary School.
