SMSC

At Blakehill Primary we aim to provide the following:

 

A stimulating experienced based curriculum that is meaningful, appropriate and relevant to our children’s needs which enables them to make progress and reach their full potential.

A consistent approach to the delivery of SMSC development through the curriculum and the overall life of school.

A safe and secure learning environment.

Activities that encourage pupils to recognise the spiritual dimension of their learning and reflect on the significance of what they are learning.

 SMSC will be found everywhere in school. Look on the website to spot more SMSC moments.

Spiritual development involves- the growth of their sense of self, their unique potential, their understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, and their willingness to achieve. As their curiosity about themselves and their place in the world increases, they try to answer for themselves some of life's fundamental questions.

Moral development -Involves them acquiring an understanding of the difference between right and wrong of moral conflict, a concern for others. The will to do what is right.

Social development involves pupils acquiring an understanding of the responsibilities and rights of being members of families and communities. An ability to relate to others. To work with others for the common good.

Cultural development involves pupils acquiring an understanding of cultural traditions and the ability to appreciate and respond to a variety of aesthetic experiences. They acquire a respect for their own culture and that of others, an interest in others' ways of doing things and curiosity about differences.
