Learning journeys

The SCARF Learning Journeys show how the topic Growing and Changing develops from Nursery to Y6 , in age and developmentally-appropriate ways.

Our Growing and Changing Unit covers the DfE statutory RSHE requirements listed within the Changing Adolescent Body topic under statutory Health Education. As schools are expected to deliver a spiral curriculum, content is introduced in the early years; for example, the difference between girls' and boys' bodies and the correct words for external body parts is covered before later content about how and why bodies change.

Lesson content grows in complexity and maturity, in line with children's development, supporting them every step of the way.

For further information about how we developed an evidence-based age-appropriate curriculum please see our answer to question 4.3 of our FAQ page
