PSHE with Citizenship
Our intention is that children should leave HHS with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive, and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they set their mind to it and try their best. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of the different factors that will affect their lives and that they learn how to deal with these factors successfully for their future mental health and well-being.

Our PSHE Curriculum covers the three core themes of Health & Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Weekly PSHE lessons develop knowledge and skills which enable the children to access the wider curriculum and prepare them to be citizens now and in their future roles within a global community. Our approach to teaching PSHE is intended to support and encourage all learners to be the very best they can be and the core values discussed in these lessons are embedded throughout the curriculum including Year Group and Whole School assemblies. We place a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health through the delivery of a programme of engaging and relevant PSHE lessons. The Curriculum promotes the moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Our PSHE curriculum incorporates an age-appropriate understanding of RSE, as set out in the statutory guidance, enabling all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and for the future. We also promote and practise mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus. Our approach aims to develop the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society and the global community.
