Dunton Bassett Primary School


We use the 'SCARF' (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) scheme by Coram Life Education. This is divided into the following topics:


  • Me and My Relationships

  • Valuing Difference

  • Keeping Myself Safe

  • Rights and Responsibilities

  • Being My Best

  • Growing and Changing


We also cover anti bullying and E-safety as separate sessions set at the appropriate levels.


Assemblies are delivered every day, covering elements of current topics in the news or celebrations. In addition, the teaching of the core British Values and School Rules outline how these are exemplified in our own school values. Stand alone sessions in light of different circumstances or situations are also carried out, relating to the specific needs of the children as we go through the year.


We have consulted stakeholders on our proposed approach to delivering the new Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE) for the summer term 2021 onwards. Our draft policy is below.
