Just to let you know that we’re here and working hard to support your children’s ongoing PSHE, including mental wellbeing, during this new period of restricted school opening.
1. A new set of SCARF at Home resources is now live online – more about these, below.
2. More SCARF and PSHE-related resources will be made available to you in the next few days, so that you can provide tailored, relevant activities that best meet your children’s needs.
3. Harold’s Diary will re-start next week – a big favourite with children during lockdown 1 – with activities to support children’s emotional and physical health.
4. We’re continuing to provide free and low-cost training to help schools prepare for new RSE statutory requirements (click here to find out more) and regularly adding more dates.
Please remember that our SCARF curriculum lessons need to be taught by professionals and aren’t suitable to send home to parents. Sharing SCARF logins with parents is not permitted.
Please get in touch if you feel we can support you in a different way.

The third of our SCARF at home resources give you SCARF activities that children can safely do at home during this time of restricted school opening.
This new set is based on the half-termly unit Keeping Myself Safe.
The focus is on keeping safe, physically and mentally and include activities that support DfE statutory requirements for keeping safe online – particularly relevant when children are at home and with potentially unsupervised access to harmful online content.
What is SCARF at Home?
Age-appropriate SCARF online activities to do at home – no password required. The activities will:
· Cover key concepts and outcomes within SCARF’s half-termly units; activities to encourage children to think and reflect
· Focus on positive themes that are safe for parents to discuss with their child, avoiding unsafe subjects
· For younger children, provide family-friendly activities that promote discussion
· For older children, provide activities that can be done alone if an adult is not available to give time
· Avoid, for the most part, the need for resources other than pencil and paper (home-printer not essential)
How do parents access the SCARF at Home activities?
· A new SCARF page gives you key information and a link to share with parents: find your new SCARF at Home page here.
· The link for parents will take them to a short overview page
· Four separate links on the overview page take parents to age-specific activities based on the third SCARF half-termly unit: Keeping Myself Safe
· New activities will be added every half term for as long as the need continues.
You’re welcome to print the resources to send to those families with limited or no internet access.
Please get in touch with us or Life Education Centre Nottinghamshire if you need help or have any questions.
