Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural (SMSC)

Introduction
Our school promotes high standards in pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural
development. Clear principles and values are laid out in our Vision Statement, which
underpins all policies, schemes of work and daily practices.
We aim to promote relationships that are open and consistent and based on mutual respect.
The code of practice followed by our school enhances personal qualities that include honesty,
co-operation and understanding of others.
Our school provides high standards in pupils’ social and cultural development through the
curriculum and everyday life experiences. There are many opportunities for pupils to expand
their interests and experiences as well as their social and cultural awareness. Our aim is for
pupils to converse confidently with each other with mutual respect. Both the content of the
curriculum and styles of teaching and learning encourage an increasingly mature and
sophisticated response to personal experience and social issues. Links with the wider
community are growing and contribute to pupils’ social and cultural development.
