Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSCHE) threads through every lesson here at Highfield. The strong link between pupils’ health and wellbeing and their academic progress makes it imperative that children are taught the crucial skills and positive attitudes to become effective learners. As well as class based discussions around topical issues, teachers use the SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) online resources to support them in promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. In addition to this, teachers also deliver P4C (Philosophy for Children), which is a whole school approach that we use across the curriculum, in every subject, and with all ages and abilities. This aims to encourage children to ask questions and discuss hypotheses without the need for a final ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answer. Over time, the teacher supports the children to think more deeply and philosophically by encouraging the 4Cs of P4C – critical, creative, collaborative and caring thinking.
