At Ribbleton Avenue Methodist Junior School our curriculum is underpinned by our Christian Ethos and school values; Ambition, Courage, Respect, Love, Hope and Faith. 

Our PSHE education, provides a framework though which key skills, attributes and knowledge can be developed and applied. This promotes positive behaviour, good mental health and wellbeing, resilience and achievement. It helps our children to stay safe online, develop healthy and safe relationships, making sense of media messages, challenging extreme views and having the skills and attributes to negotiate and assert themselves now and in the future.



The school has a powerful combination of a planned thematic PSHE program, built around a spiral curriculum of recurring themes, designed to:


  • Give pupils the knowledge and develop the self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness to make informed choices and decisions
  • Encourage and support the development of social skills and social awareness
  • Enable pupils to make sense of their own personal and social experiences
  • Promote responsible attitudes towards the maintenance of good physical and mental health, supported by a safe and healthy lifestyle
  • Enable effective interpersonal relationships and develop a caring attitude towards others
  • Encourage a caring attitude towards and responsibility for the environment
  • Help our pupils understand and manage their feelings, build resilience and be independent, curious problem solvers
  • Understand how society works and the laws, rights and responsibilities involved.


At RAMJS we use SCARF, a comprehensive scheme of work for PSHE and Wellbeing education. An overview of SCARF can be found below. It covers all of the DfE's new statutory requirements for Relationships Education and Health Education, including non-statutory Sex Education, and the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study’s recommended learning opportunities, as well as contributing to different subject areas in the National Curriculum

At RAMJS we use whole class sketchbooks to record our PSHE learning. We have found this is really beneficial to the children as they are able to express their feelings both within the group setting but also individually during the independent task. Here are a few examples of the work around school.
