The SHARP Values were created by the children for the whole school community and have become an integral part of the school’s identity and sense of belonging. At Sharps Copse Primary, we respond to evidence that effective social emotional learning improves learning outcomes, and short-term and longer-term wellbeing outcomes. The SHARP Learning Behaviours Curriculum was adapted from The Six Strands Learning Behaviours Curriculum developed by a group of professionals working with Hampshire Primary Behaviour Service.
The aim in introducing the SHARP Learning Behaviours in our school was to provide children and adults with a clear, positive framework for developing the key values of Standards, Honesty, Attitude, Resilience and Pride. There are Curriculum Targets for Year R, KS1 and Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. At Sharps Copse, these behaviours reinforce the values for our whole community.
