At Brinsworth Howarth, pupils’ wellbeing, happiness and safety are our first priority, and PSHE is the key vehicle through which we share this with pupils. We regard PSHE as an important, integral component of the whole curriculum; it is central to our approach and at the core of our ethos.

SMSC is a dimension of the whole school experience, which makes the curriculum relevant, stimulating, creative and fun. It is not taught independently as a subject – it enriches every subject as well as the whole ethos of our school.

​We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop a sense of individual and group identity, a sense of social and moral responsibility, high standards of personal behaviour and expectations, and a positive, caring attitude towards other people. We also support pupils to explore their own and others’ values, beliefs, feelings and responses to personal experiences.
