Our Curriculum:


At Bedford Primary School, we recognise that the curriculum we deliver is the toolkit we send our children out into the world with. It reflects our context, core values and the kind of citizens we want them to be. We have to be ambitious for them and prepare them for a rapidly changing digital world.

Why is PSHE so important?


There's 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. In preparing our Long Term Plans for PHSE, we have considered the location and context of our school to ensure that learning is relevant to the needs of our children. 


To compliment our existing provision, we use SCARF resources from Coram Life Education.  








These resources provide a whole-school approach to building these essential foundations – crucial for children to achieve their best, academically and socially.  The resources are also fully compliant with the new DfE statutory RSE requirements, and expectations for Personal Development, SMSC and British Values.


Also working alongside us to support our PHSE curriculum:
