RE/PSHE/SMSC at Hylands

At Hylands we believe that  all children should have the opportunity to develop a love of learning and a love of life itself by giving them a rich and varied curriculum. We  enable our children to grow into thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and the wider community. Our curriculum gives children the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the school and local community. We nurture independence and a growth mindset in order for our children to learn.

Our SMSC/FBV curriculum gives children the opportunity to: 

Spiritual - Explore beliefs, experience and faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity and reflect on experiences. 

Moral - Recognise right and wrong and respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues and offer reasoned views.

Social - Use a range of social skills to participate in the local community and beyond; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict. 

Cultural - Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain’s parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity. 

Democracy - Be part of a system where everyone plays an equal part. 

Rule of law - Learn that all people and institutions are subject to and accountable for their actions and behaviour. 

Individual liberty - Be free to express views or ideas.

Well being: Learn to respect themselves and others, reflect and think mindfully about their learning, recognise that people have different strengths, build respectful friendships, develop self-esteem and confidence, work in a range of groups and settings.

Pupil Voice: Our pupils know that everyone is valued and that their thoughts, ideas and opinions count. They are able to make a positive contribution to the school and local community, take part in democratic activities across the curriculum, express their opinions on a range of different topics and issues, contribute to planning their own learning, take part in discussions and express their thoughts about their learning.

Enrichment: We aim to ensure that experiences, activities and opportunities inspire a love of learning for all by providing on and off-site  topic related activities, offering opportunities for children to learn outdoors, developing partnerships with external providers that extend children’s opportunities for learning, holding specialist curriculum days or weeks, welcoming parents and carers to take part in children’s learning and experiences.
