Our approach is designed to give pupils a voice and for them to feel empowered, able to identify and articulate their feelings and needs, and enable them to make healthy choices. In primary schools, Harold, our healthy-living giraffe mascot, helps to convey these messages to children, within a magical learning environment. Children and young people experience fun, engaging and memorable workshops with ALEC and Coram Life Education.

To support families, we have a dedicated Family SCARF
area on our Coram Life Education SCARF website. Here you will find activities and information that can help build positive relationships and help your child to be their best, both at school and at home.
