Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

RHSE - HeartSmart

RHSE - HeartSmart at Archbishop Cranmer CE Primary Academy


RHE (Relationships and Health Education) teaching at Archbishop Cranmer follows the ‘HeartSmart’ scheme alongside ‘Christopher Winters’ scheme for RSE (Relationships and Sex Education). Our aim is to equip our pupils with a healthy internal dialogue and resilient approach to life through high-quality learning opportunities which link closely to our school values and church-school ethos, whilst ensuring that our children are kept safe by understanding their rights and responsibilities, preparing them for life in the future. Through following HeartSmart, pupils engage in learning experiences told through stories to build healthy thinking, covering topics such as self-love, relationships with others, emotions, truthfulness and resilience.


HeartSmart is a creative new approach that many primary schools use to build character, emotional health and resilience in children. It equips them with foundational principles and skills that will improve their mental health, relationships and academic achievement.

As a school we recognise the value of educating the heart alongside educating the mind and HeartSmart is a great tool to do just that.

There are some fun phrases that are part of the program and I’m sure you’ll start hearing them in your home as well. They’re called the HeartSmart High Five and here’s a brief overview:



You may also hear about Boris the Robot. He's made from bits and bobs of recycled rubbish and plays an important role in HeartSmart. We follow his story of learning not to listen to the Scrapman's voice (who says he belongs on the scrapheap!). There's a book that we read and reference to (depending on year group) and if you wanted you could get a copy for your home.

As part of Year 2's RHE learning in the Summer Term through our HeartSmart lessons, we learnt about why it's important to stay safe in the sun. We created this video to help others remember, too!
