Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development including British Values
At Cullingworth Village Primary School, the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development of our children also includes the development and understanding of modern British Values. This is developed through the whole curriculum or in discrete PSHCE lessons or assemblies.
The curriculum at Cullingworth allows the children to imagine, reflect, create and enjoy learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
As a school we are committed to ensuring that our children are thoughtful, active and caring citizens at school and in the wider world. The children are taught to be able to recognise right from wrong. They are supported in understanding the consequences of their behaviour and actions.
Our pupils are taught to use of a range of social skills in different contexts, for example working and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They are given the opportunity to be involved in community events and competitions. They are taught to resolve their own conflicts effectively. They are taught the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.
We develop the children’s understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and the city in which we live. This is an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain. We help the children to understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity through a range of opportunities e.g. visits, visitors, stories and musical opportunities.
