Our curriculum is designed to develop all our children as positive, responsible individuals with a strong sense of their community and the contributions they can make as citizens, locally, nationally and globally.
As the school develops in its local community, we recognise the necessity to review our provision of PSHE, RSE and SMSC to embrace the following elements:
It is therefore vital that we work together with our staff, children, Local Governors and our parents to develop the wider personal, social, health and economic education curriculum by being agile, aware, fully meeting statutory requirements set down at national level and anticipating the concerns, opportunities and challenges ahead of our pupils before they arise.
The British Values promoted, as stated by the Department for Education are as follows:
Our Hunsley Primary Values aim to unite children as a team, to be respectful of the British Values in every experience they share in school and beyond the school gates. The Hunsley Primary Values are displayed in school and use a language the children share – they were voted for by the children, for the children, and as such are their values to share and pass on to others. Each value is based on the British Values above to ensure these vital elements are built into the heart of the school day.
We regularly revisit the Values in our assembly; share them on posters in the Hall; refer to them in our day-to-day discussions with pupils and link them to wider challenges and issues we might cover in our curriculum.

Additionally, through our approach to linking curriculum subjects such as religious studies, history, geography, English and modern languages to our Values, pupils are taught to:
The Key Stage 2 curriculum leads onto the more stretching learning experiences that children will have in their secondary education and we collaborate with our Trust secondary colleagues to ensure the journey is continual, robust and challenging.
