At Henry Whipple SMSC underpins everything we do. We recognise that the personal development of the children, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant role in their ability to learn and to grow into well rounded members of society.
We provide an education that provides children with opportunities to explore and develop:
Spiritual Development – The children’s beliefs, religious or otherwise, which inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for other people’s beliefs and values. We promote this @ HWP through the following:
Moral Development – A pupil’s understanding, attitude and behaviour to what is right and what is wrong. This is developed @ HWP through the following:
Social Development – a pupil’s progressive acquisition of the competencies and qualities needed to play a full part in society. We promote this @ HWP through the following:
Cultural Development – A child’s understanding of the beliefs, values and customs in their own and others social, ethnic and national groups. We promote this @ HWP through:
This week we have been supporting Children's Mental Health Week. The theme this year was 'Find you Brave'. Each class held a show and tell, focused around being brave. The children shared lots of wonderful moments where they 'found their brave'.

During assembly we discussed what `respect` means, how we can show it and why we should be respectful. We also spoke about our British Values which we should follow and be proud of. We discussed the impact of these on us. We delved deep with our thoughts.
