At FHIS, we recognise the importance of PSHE/RSE and how it teaches children to be socially aware, safe and play a positive role within their community; we celebrate and welcome differences within our school. Our PSHE/RSE curriculum helps children to communicate and collaborate effectively whilst also encouraging independence.

We follow the online SCARF scheme which aims to equip children for happy, healthy lives and to be effective learners. We believe that feeling happy, safe and loved are the roots any child needs to grow. Our PSHE curriculum is designed with our children at its heart, looking at that needs of those in our community and teaching accordingly. We also offer a range of enrichment and PD opportunities to help develop children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and boosting cultural capital.



From September 2022, we introduced the SCRAF scheme. However, we supplement this with our Trust scheme which is based upon ‘No Outsiders’ in order to enhance our bespoke curriculum. This ensures that children revisit key areas and gain a breadth of knowledge and skills in a variety of ways.  . Within our curriculum, we share stories that prompt discussion around key issues - through a shared dialogue and language, we promote equality and challenge.

We have termly ‘sunshine’ sessions with enable all children to have a voice, build self-esteem and trust in others. These nurturing activities enhance the emotional well-being of our children.

Protective behaviours are at the heart of everything we do at FHIS, the children know and use a range of mantras to keep them safe both in school and in the community and on-line.

Our school culture is one where the whole school community work together to foster an environment of inclusivity. As children move through FHIS, we want them to explore their differences so that they feel comfortable being their true self. We want children to know who they are, feel proud to be who they are, and also know that they are accepted without judgement.

All children are taught from their first year in school that we are all different and we like that. In Early Years and Years 1 and 2, we use picture books where characters are different, and we show that they are friends and they play together.  It is a fact that prejudice and discrimination exist, and children may experience it at some point in their lifetime.

Together, as parents, carers and teachers, we can prepare our children, give them the confidence to disagree when they hear prejudice, and show them that they are not alone. By using No Outsiders children build the language to challenge prejudice and show acceptance. Not only do they feel safe knowing they belong, they can also show and tell others that they too are safe: “I will be your friend. You belong here. You don’t have to change; there are no outsiders."

We work to ensure that our children understand that:

There are No Outsiders at FHIS:

– Everyone is different
– We celebrate our differences
– We are all equal in our differences

 I can get along with you even if we are different
– We live in the UK, our British Values support this and the law says this too.
