At HSMS we subscribe to the Jigsaw PSHE framework, a nationally recognised curriculum resource, which helps support the the delivery of high quality, ambitious and consistent teaching and learning across a range of SMSC themes and which is aligned with the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Each year group at HSMS spends a term exploring themes, knowledge and skills related to Careers Education in a unit called 'Dreams and Goals'.
Our PSHE / Careers and Citizenship Curriculum, ensures that the key skills and essential knowledge we have identified permeate our curriculum from year 5 to year 8, allowing our pupils to make links in their learning as well as develop the ability to think more deeply about what they are learning. In this respect, pupils’ learning is meaningful and purposeful, and designed in a range of contexts, which offer breadth and variety to their learning.

Staff have access to a wide range of resources to teach careers in curriculum on the school Teams site, where knowledge and best practice are shared
