PSHE at Home

At Highfield we use SCARF for our PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education. With SCARF, children learn vital life skills they need to help them be happy, healthy and safe.

The theme this half term is Rights and Responsibilities. 

This unit focuses on the skills needed to develop into responsible citizens. As with all SCARF at Home resources, these activities are specially designed to be relevant to children at home and safe for parents/carers to use with children.

  • Beginning to understand how to look after money, including saving and spending.
  • Responsibilities that we have at home
  • Caring for our environment

Follow these steps to find specially designed SCARF at home activities. These are similar to the ones your child's class are doing in school at this time.

Harold will be sharing ideas and activities to support children's mental health and wellbeing, based on the New Economics Foundation and NHS 5 Ways to Wellbeing guidance.
