Our PSHE overview of learning
At Howitt Primary Community School, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning is taught through our whole school curriculum. It helps our pupils to develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of our ever changing world. Our pupils learn about the beliefs, cultures, difficulties and needs of other people through our Embark core themes. This, in turn, helps everyone to develop a greater consideration, care and empathy for the world around us. Our ultimate aim is to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
The three statutory aims of the national curriculum have been used to inform the PSHCE education at our school. We aim to help all young people to become:
- successful learners who enjoy learning make progress and achieve
- confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
- responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society
5 Ways to Wellbeing
We believe that it is important to know when we are mentally and physically well. We understand that sometimes we need a little extra support to keep well. At Howitt Primary Community School we help to improve our wellbeing by having a day each term to reflect on the 5 ways of wellbeing.
