British Values and SMSC
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
We promote and reinforce these British Values throughout the curriculum and all areas of school life. Topics and units of work are used to focus on these values in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Theme days and assemblies put these values at the heart of our school. Visitors into school and class trips enhance teaching, learning and understanding in all of these areas.
Our school also believes the teaching of SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) to be of the upmost importance in preparing all of our children to participate fully and positively in their community, now and in the future
Children's SMSC development is promoted and embedded in our school in a variety of ways. All classes take part in PSHE and C lessons. Topics and units of work are used to promote children's understanding in a range of areas, such as healthy lifestyles, money awareness and relationships. Themed weeks, for example, Anti-bullying and Understanding our Rights ensure all children have the opportunity to develop understanding of SMSC. Circle time gives pupils a voice and enable them to share their feelings and concerns in a safe and open environment, whilst developing a mature emotional vocabulary.
