Hutton Cranswick Community Primary School


At Hutton Cranswick C P School we follow a whole school programme called HeartSmart, which is a whole school approach that brings together our PSHE (personal, social and health) education. 

SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout and also link carefully with our school ethos, vision and aims.

All of these elements of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in the world.

The units we follow are:


Be HeartSmart!

Don't forget to let love in!


Too much selfie isn't healthy!

Don't rub it in, rub it out!


Fake is a mistake!

'No way through' isn't true!

Throughout these units the children cover areas such as: how we use our power in positive ways, understanding our emotions, developing an awareness of our surroundings and the people around us, discussing simple rules to help keep us safe online and looking at how we are the same and how we are different.

Relationship and Sex / Health Education (RSHE)

The work we do with HeartSmart over the year supports our RSHE curriculum in helping to foster pupil well-being and develop resilience and values that we know are fundamental to pupils being happy, successful and productive members of society.

To strengthen this further, Big Talk Education help us to deliver a Growing Up Safe programme that has the following outcomes for pupils:

  • Pupils should be able to form a strong, early understanding of the features of relationships that are likely to lead to happiness and security.
  • Pupils should be able to recognise any less positive relationships when they encounter them.
  • RSHE should create the opportunity to teach pupils about positive emotional and mental well-being, including how friendships can support our mental well-being.
  • RSHE should contribute to the prevention of abuse and protection of children, by teaching the knowledge they need to be safe and to report abuse, including emotional, physical and sexual abuse.
  • Children should be prepared for the physiological and emotional changes they will go through during puberty, where possible before these occur. Understanding that these are natural and normal changes.
