CARES Curriculum and VMG


To achieve excellence for all, our culture is founded on 5 core values which form the backbone of our CARES curriculum. These values are qualities we expect every individual in our organisation to display and strive towards

Courage We face new challenges with bravery. We learn from our mistakes and grow back stronger.
Aspiration We have ambition for our futures and understand how we can contribute to life in modern Britain.
Respect We treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. We follow instructions from all first time, every time.
Equality We respect the diversity of the world and can engage with different views in considered ways.
Self-control We understand and can control our own emotions to help us be actively responsible citizens who contribute positively to society.

CARES Curriculum Overview


Subject Definition

The practice and development of the virtues, habits and emotional intelligence that will enable students to cultivate ethical intuition.

CARES Curriculum Intent

We will, as a whole staff body, embody the culture and values of the school (CARES) so that are students are empowered to learn, grow and develop into the best version of themselves.

The Life Skills curriculum at HHS seeks to enhance students spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as to equip students with the empathy and resilience required to be able to manage their emotions and communicate to succeed in the ever changing 21st century.

We want our students to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. Our curriculum will be continually responsive to our students and we strive to equip them with the tools needed to understand boundaries and appropriate responses to a wide range of health, wellbeing, relationship and issues in the wider world.
