At Hamilton School we recognise the personal development of students is a fundamental part of our academic and pastoral work. It is our intention to create good local, national and global citizens, who develop good character and resilience. To this end, we aim to develop students spiritually, morally, socially and culturally and ensure that they are treated as individuals whilst doing this.  We aim to teach students about British values, mutual respect and tolerance. 

We aim to develop students in this way through all aspects of school life; curriculum, extra-curricular activities, the pastoral system, assemblies, as well as themed events.

Our PSMSC provision incorporates both PSHE and SMSC.  We follow the recommendations laid out by the Department for Education and the PSHE Association, using the JIGSAW programme of study.  We review and update this each year in line with their guidance.

Topics for all students are grouped into 6 core themes:

  • Being Me In My World

  • Celebrating Differences

  • Dreams and Goals

  • Healthy Me

  • Relationships

  • Changing Me
