SMSC & British Values


SMSC Policy Statement

British Values Statement
View statement

Within school we understand our responsibility to encourage our pupils and students to be ‘the best they can be’ and take their rightful place within the community. We promote positive regard for all of our young people and those within our community and have high standards of behaviour and tolerance of difference. The curriculum is designed to meet all needs and has a strong emphasis upon social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. In this respect we aim to develop and maximise our pupils understanding of:

  • Right from wrong both in personal actions and the actions of others
  • Tolerance of others including those who have different opinions and beliefs
  • Respect for others and their way of life

For each individual pupil/student we aim to:

  • Improve their self-esteem and self-confidence both within school and the wider community
  • Develop their understanding of harmony between people within a community
  • Enable them to partake in democratic processes at their level of understanding and advocate for those who do not have a a voice in these processes
  • Increase their understanding of their community and how, as an adult, they can contribute to decision making

Through a planned personal development programme, PSHE and citizenship, we develop our pupils understanding of:

  • How rules and laws protect people and their well-being, keeping them safe
  • How within any diverse community people have freedom of choice and freedom of belief
  • How within any community friends, colleagues and neighbours can hold different beliefs and opinions on many issues
  • How we can all prevent discrimination

Within school we have 2 active councils and regularly seek pupil feedback. Our educational visits ensure pupils see different aspects of the community in which they live and also experience places further afield.
