SMSC

 

Aims and objectives

At All Saints CEVA Primary School and Nursery we strive to create a learning environment which promotes respect, diversity and self-awareness and equips all of our pupils with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and value they will need to succeed in their future lives.

The curriculum provides a wide range of artisitc, sporting and cultural opportunitites that encourage pupils to work together and use imagination in their learning. Activities are planned that require pupils to reflect and empathize with others as well as giving them the confidence to provide their opinions and develop their own view points.

We closely link SMSC with our PSHE scheme of work and RE learning, including collective workship. Our British values work is also part of the SMSC agenda. We have an agreed set of non-negiotiables for our children which they must experience during their time at All Saints CEVA Primary School & Nursery.

Spiritual Development

Spirtual development focuses on an individual's own personal beliefs and values and their resulting behaviours. Through spiritual development, children are able to understand their own feelings and emotions and this enables them to reflect and to learn.

Our Learning environment and curriculum

Curriculum opportunities enable pupils to:

  • Be curious and to express feelings of delight andwonder, (scientific investigations, chemical reactions, new life, the global landscape)
  • Empathise and consider the viewpoints of others, (debates, drama activities, discussing feelings and empathising with characters in familiar stories)
  • Consider how a belief can change people's lifestyles, (RE,investigating communities and faiths, historical case studies)
  • Discuss what they think they have achieved and what they need to do to be successful in the future, (self-assessment, target setting activities)

 

Moral Development

Moral development means exploring, understanding and recognising shared values and considering the issues of right or wrong.

Our learning environment and curriculum
