Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social Development

We aim, through the curriculum, to promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, in particular, develop principles for distinguishing between right and wrong.

Spiritual development involves the growth of one’s own sense of self and one’s place in the world. Children are encouraged to ask questions about the world, their own inner lives and non-material well-being.

We aim to promote enduring values, develop children’s integrity and autonomy and help them become responsible, caring citizens.

Children are helped to promote equal opportunities; to challenge discrimination and stereotyping; to make informed judgements and independent decisions, and to understand their rights and responsibilities.

We promote children’s self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form good relationships based on respect for themselves and others. Children are encouraged to respond positively to opportunities and challenges, to manage risk and cope with change and adversity.

Increasingly, we have used a wide range of resources and teaching/learning strategies, to support S.E.A.L (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning).

The personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
