SRE & SMSC

At Hodge Hill College we provide a positive ethos based upon British values that are shared across the school community. The culture and ethos of the school promotes respect as well as healthy and productive attitudes towards learning, life and work. Pupils are encouraged to contribute to the life and work of the school and, from the earliest stages, to exercise their responsibilities as members of a community. The focus of SMSC and SRE programmes are to   empower student to stay safe and share the positive British values of society.

 

SRE

We aim to provide an environment at Hodge Hill College were young people can develop and flourish.  SRE is fundamental part of our SMSC programme preparing students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. SRE at Hodge Hill College focuses on relationships and issues that arise from relationships. In delivering SRE it is our aim for pupils to develop a healthy, safer lifestyle.

 

During the school year there are a number of off timetable Safe days where pupils focus on SRE issues. The planning for these days is developed from local and national priorities. Our national priorities are informed from the Department of Education document ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2016. Local priorities are reached though agreement with the Child Protection and Pastoral team. Some teaching on these Safe days may be in smaller single sex groups in order to provide pupils with an environment were they feel comfortable in order to enable pupils to get the maximum benefit from each session. For example Sex Education is delivere in smaller single sex groups.

SMSC

At Hodge Hill College we aim to provide a community ethos that enables pupils to grow as individuals, appreciating their own worth and the worth of others. Throughout the curriculum in all subjects staff work towards developing the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) aspects of all pupils. SMSC education develops pupil’s appreciation and understanding of different people’s feelings and values, cultural diversity and different communities.  Hodge Hill College has a caring ethos that nurturers the whole student and SMSC is a vital part of pupils development to ensure they become fully rounded and valued people.

Collective Worship

At Hodge Hill College we have a collective worship calendar that provides pupils with an opportunity to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs and to develop community spirit, promote a common ethos and shared values, and reinforce positive attitudes

 

At Hodge Hill College each week has a focus that provides pupils with an opportunity for reflection and Spiritual development. The focus of the week is delivered through the thought for the day which is presented during morning registration, a leadership assembly once a week for each year group  and a short film clip and discussion focusing on the weekly theme.
