Coram Life Education

Coram Life Education (CLE) delivers all that teachers need to support the positive mental health of their pupils and deliver the new Relationships Education and Health Education curriculum.

Developed by teachers and centred on a values-based and ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, CLE have created SCARF online resources, based on five principles - Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship. They support primary schools in promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement – giving schools everything they need to meet the new Relationships Education and Health Education statutory requirements. More than just a PSHE scheme of work, SCARF supports great learning every day and has over 29,000 school-based subscribers.

CLE programmes and online SCARF reach 420,000 children every year in over 2,000 schools – 10% of English and Scottish primary schools.

SCARF provides a whole-school approach to building the essential foundations for children to achieve their best, academically and socially. Our work includes specialist educator delivery and comprehensive online SCARF lesson plans, planning and assessment tools for Nursery to Year 6, and is aligned to the National Curriculum and Curriculum for Excellence (Scotland).

Schools can sign up for a sample of our SCARF materials on the Coram Life Education website.

As well as the SCARF resources, CLE has worked in partnership with other parts of the Coram Group to put together a range of resources. These include:

  • The Adoptables' Schools Toolkit: an educational resource, which has been accredited by the PSHE Association, that enables your students to understand the issues facing adopted children at school. It also increases staff awareness of behavioural issues that can affect young people from the care system. The Adoptables Schools’ Toolkit was developed with adopted young people and is available for teachers to use free of charge.  
  • Captain Coram teaching module: the Captain Coram Citizenship resource consists of six carefully planned sessions with beautiful source materials that take children on an journey through children’s rights from Coram's early days of receiving a Royal Charter in 1739 to the work of Coram today. It has been designed to link with Key Stage 2 National Curriculum subjects History, Art and English as well as PSHE & Citizenship education and SMSC requirements of Ofsted.
