SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship

SCARF has been developed with and for teachers in Scotland.

By using SCARF across your setting, you can be sure that you have the best possible curriculum and additional activities to support children’s physical and emotional health and wellbeing – in turn, helping them to become successful learners, responsible citizens, effective contributors and confident individuals.

“Learning through health and wellbeing promotes confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes and dispositions. Because of this, it is the responsibility of every teacher to contribute to learning and development in this area.”    Building the Curriculum 1

Curriculum for excellence

SCARF is mapped to Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes.  As well as health and wellbeing, SCARF is mapped to other CfE subjects, helping you to integrate your provision.

SCARF and Curriculum for Excellence
