Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development across the Curriculum
Through helping pupils to consider and respond to questions of meaning and purpose in life, and questions about nature of values in human society.
Through helping pupils to consider and respond to areas of morality using their knowledge and understanding of religious and ethical teaching. This enables them to make reasoned and informed judgements on religious and moral issues.
Through helping pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging, preparing them for life as citizens in society.
Through fostering pupil’s knowledge and understanding of a range of beliefs, practices and values in their own society and in the wider world. Pupils explore issues within and between faiths, developing their understanding of the cultural contexts within which they live.
We try to promote the values and attitudes needed for citizenship in a democratic society by helping pupils to understand and respect people of different beliefs, practices, races and cultures. Similarities and differences can be recognised, respected and valued. These experiences will help enable the children to make sensitive, informed and effective responses to the challenges that they face in an increasingly complex and changing society.
