PDL (Personal Development Learning)

At Fleet Infant School we use a programme from Coram Life Education called SCARF(which stands for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship),  which takes a three strand approach addressing children’s knowledge, skills and attitudes. This programme is aligned with the National Curriculum (Citizenship, PSHE Education) and ensures that we meet the statutory requirements for children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, and Ofsted inspection criteria for personal development, behaviour and welfare.


By using this programme, children’s PDL sessions are fun, engaging and memorable. Children meet Harold the Giraffe puppet (‘Healthy Harold’), his friends, have discussions and watch short films about healthy eating, legal and illegal drugs and their effects, the body and how it works, friendships and their influence, and how choices and behaviours can affect children’s health and education outcomes.
