As part of a holistic approach to the National Curriculum, students will be taught a broad range of subjects to help develop and promote their growth spiritually, morally, socially, and culturally. The school aims to provide students with opportunities both academically and outside of the classroom to support their personal development and well-being.
Spiritual - Reflective of their own beliefs, knowledge, and respect of different peoples' feelings/faiths/values, enjoyment and fascination in learning, imagination and creativity in learning, reflect on their own experiences.
Moral - Recognise right from wrong, recognition of legal boundaries, respect civil and criminal law, understand consequences of behaviour and actions, investigate and give reasoned views, understand and appreciate other viewpoints.
Social - Work and socialise with all people of different backgrounds, participate in community events, resolve conflict, British values: mutual respect and tolerance for others, appreciate and understand democracy/law/liberty, demonstrate skills which will contribute positively to life in Britain.
Cultural - Understand cultural influences on themselves and others, appreciate different cultures, recognise and value commonalities between people, understand the democratic parliamentary system in Britain, explore and improve their knowledge of other faiths and diversity on a local, national and global scale.
Further details can also be found on the subject curriculum plans on the school website. Each curriculum plan clearly outlines the various SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) strands they are addressing each week.
