At Hallam Primary school the children and their learning are at the very heart of every decision made. We aim to develop learners who are passionate, take ownership of their learning and are proud of their achievements. We recognise that the personal development of pupils spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. At our school we aim to help all individuals reach their full potential and we are committed to enabling children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
Reception children follow the EYFS curriculum covering SMSC through personal, social and emotional development, one of the prime areas of learning.
At our school we hold regular school council meetings. School council members are 'A voice ' for their peers. Each class has representatives to pass on their class messages and ideas for the school. Other strands of SMSC are covered through physical development, understanding of the world and communication and language.
Children are taught how to look after themselves, emphasising the caring aspects in human relationships and the way in which humans and animals look after their young.
