SMSC and British Values

At Bankfields Primary School, SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) provision is embedded across the curriculum, and underpins the ethos of our school. We recognise that the personal development of pupils’, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. Therefore, we aim to provide pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, a caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of the cultures. The school will ensure that children should understand the influences that the culture in which they live, and that of the wider community influences has.

SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) education is taught through a wide range of activities and is woven throughout our curriculum so that the children have a good sense of who they are, the community they belong to and about people and issues in the global community. The children have a BIG Question each week which they can discuss and though these, they are beginning to create their own questions about the world they live and the cultures within it. The children and staff have enjoyed discussing or debating the questions.

British Values

British Values in school teaches the children about Democracy, Rule of Law, Mutual Respect and Tolerance for those of other faiths or those without faith and Individual Liberty. At Bankfields we believe these values will help our children be ready for life in modern day Britain.
