Our vision is for all children to acquire the life skills needed to thrive.
Coram Life Education & SCARF
Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship
Coram Life Education & SCARF offers a whole-school approach to wellbeing and mental health. Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum supports over 2,500 schools, 50,000 teachers and reaches over 570,000 pupils every year.
Our service includes SCARF, a comprehensive, fully resourced PSHE scheme of work for 3-11 year-olds; high-quality, educator-led workshops for pupils; and free and low-cost staff training.
We provide a host of high-quality, evidence-informed training for individual teachers, whole-staff groups and multi-school groups, which are free or low cost. We also create bespoke courses to meet specific training needs.
Additional resources for teachers
We have worked with colleagues across Coram and with young people to produce a range of resources for teachers. These include:
- The Adoptables’ Schools Toolkit: a resource that enables students to understand the issues facing adopted children at school (accredited by the PSHE Association).
- Captain Coram Citizenship: a resource that takes children on a journey through children’s rights from Coram receiving a Royal Charter in 1739 to the work of Coram today (links with Key Stage 2 National Curriculum subjects History, Art and English as well as PSHE & Citizenship education and SMSC requirements of Ofsted).
- The Belonging Toolkit: engaging activities and videos produced with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds for KS2 & KS3 to encourage and enable sensitive discussion about the importance of inclusion and empathy towards pupils from migrant backgrounds.
- Voices Through Time: A resource that enables children to explore the themes of petitions and identity for 18th-century children born into poverty and how these might apply to their lives today, through digitised Coram Foundling Hospital documents (available to SCARF subscribers). This resource is coming soon.
