Bradley Barton Primary School and Nursery All inspired to learn and inspired learning for all.




At Bradley Barton Primary School, we follow a PSHE scheme from the Coram Life Education Provider. It provides a framework for pupils of all ages called SCARF (which stands for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship). The framework consists of lesson plans, online planning and assessment tools to provide children with a comprehensive PSHE and Wellbeing programme throughout their primary years at Bradley Barton Primary School. SCARF is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement and wellbeing.


Nursery through to Year 6 deliver at least one weekly discreet lesson from SCARF.

Relationships education focuses on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships including:


  • Families and people who care for me
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe

These areas of learning are taught within the context of family life taking care to ensure that there is no stigmatisation of children based on their home circumstances (families can include single parent families, LGBT parents, families headed by grandparents, adoptive parents, foster parents/carers amongst other structures) along with reflecting sensitively that some children may have a different structure of support around them (for example: looked after children or young carers).


Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)


RSE is taught as part of our comprehensive PSHE curriculum.

The aims of relationships and sex education (RSE) at our school are to:

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place
  • Prepare pupils for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene
  • Help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships
  • Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies
  • Develop positive values that will guide our decisions, judgements and behaviour.
  • Help pupils have the confidence and self esteem to value and respect themselves and others.
  • Understand the consequences of their actions and behave responsibly and with empathy and care in all their relationships.
  • Develop awareness of their sexuality and that of others.
  • Challenge sexism and prejudice and promote equality and diversity at every opportunity.
  •  Be aware of sources of help and advice and acquire the skills and confidence to access them.
  • Develop skills to avoid being exploited or pressurised by peers or adults.


For further information regarding our RSE policy, please view our policy which can be found under policies on the school website. 



We are currently working with pupils, parents, staff and Governors to update our RSE policy before September 2020. It is currently in draft, should you have any questions or would like to contribute to this policy please contact the PSHE Lead, Miss Laura Lean.

A Visit From The Education Life Bus


In February 2020 we had a visit from The Education Life Bus, a resource proviied by SCARF.

The children had the opportunity to visit the bus for upto an hour with their class to learn about a specific topic related to the curriculum. The children loved meeting Gerald the Giraffe!

Ask your child what they learnt!

Early Help For Mental Health (EH4MH)


We were very fortunate as a school to receive free support from the Virgin Care EH4MH team. Staff attended training to increase the awareness of mental health within the school community, to support both pupils and staff. We promote this with our pupils through their environment and using a shared language about '10 a day'.

What have you done today to achieve your 10 a day?


  1. Talk about your feelings.
