In Harberton School we place great importance on helping each child to reach their full potential as a happy and engaged member of society.  We aim to equip our students with the skills and resources to make informed and responsible choices throughout their lives and to understand their roles and responsibilities within the wider community.  


Through circle time and PDMU lessons children are encouraged to explore and celebrate their individuality and diversity and to recognise and manage their emotions.  In upper key stage 2 children will be given the chance to take part in classes which develop their understanding of the personal changes that they will undergo as they become teenagers.  Through our anti-bullying initiatives children develop an excellent awareness of the support that is available to them both in school and the wider community.


Throughout their time at Harberton children will have the opportunity to join the School Council and the Eco Committee, developing their understanding of how they can directly contribute to and have a say in matters that affect them.  


In 2016/2017 we will be working towards the Rights Respecting Schools Award, with all classes implementing a class charter and engaging the children with learning about their rights and responsibilities.
