We are currently working with church on introducing HeartSmart in our school.

HeartSmart is a resource to enrich our delivery of PSHE and SMSC its aim is to build resilience, strengthen emotional intelligence and develop active empathy in the hearts of our children. Fundamentally it is about loving and accepting ourselves as well as loving and responding well to others. •  

Here are the HeartSmart key principles (High Five)

1. Don’t Forget to Let Love in!

2. Too Much Selfie isn’t Healthy!

3. Don’t Rub it in, Rub it Out!

4. Fake is a Mistake!

5. ‘No Way Through’ isn’t True

On Tuesday 3rd July we had a whole school worship led by Boris the robot (HeartSmart’s very own purpose-built Robot) it provided a fun, interactive and dynamic way for our children to explore their hearts, the very thing that makes them unique.
