PSHE Education 

We use the SCARF scheme of work to teach children PSHE at St Bartholomew's. 


'Developed by teachers and centred on the ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, SCARF's online resources support primary schools in promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.  More than just a PSHE scheme of work, SCARF supports great learning every day. 

There's now a proven link between pupils' health and wellbeing, and their academic progress. Crucial skills and positive attitudes developed through comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) are critical to ensuring children are effective learners. Teachers tell us that they recognise how important these skills and attitudes are in unlocking pupils' potential, helping to raise achievement and closing the gap in educational attainment.'

Mindfulness Mondays at St Bartholomew's

Each Monday, the children at St Bartholomew's take part in a mindfulness activity.


Practising mindfulness can help kids learn to focus, manage stress, regulate emotions, and develop a positive outlook.
