(Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development)
At Redhill Primary
we work to develop not only children’s academic knowledge, but the child as a
whole. It is within our ethos to develop our pupil’s spiritual, moral, social
and cultural being.
social and cultural education helps pupils develop personal qualities, which
are valued in a civilised society. For example, thoughtfulness, honesty,
respect for difference, moral principles, independence, and self-respect. It is
taught across the curriculum and throughout school life. It is linked closely
to our school aims and philosophy.
Development: We teach
children about themselves, others and the world around them in order to inspire
and develop a sense of awe and wonder. We explore values and beliefs in which
to inform their perspective on life and respect for other people. Creativity is
at the heart of our curriculum and we encourage a willingness to reflect on
their own experiences.
Moral Development: We provide opportunities for children to
investigate moral and ethical issues in order to develop their ability to
recognise the difference between right and wrong, with a readiness to apply
this understanding in their own lives. We develop their understanding of
consequences of their actions.
Development: We develop
social skills through working and socialising with and alongside others from a
variety of different backgrounds. We learn to cooperate well with others and
resolve conflicts effectively. We teach children about the way their own
community as well as wider society and other communities function.
Development: We explore
and develop an understanding and respect for cultural diversity. We celebrate
diversity within our school and share knowledge and experience within the
community. We provide opportunities to explore a variety of art, music, sport,
science and festivals. We also develop an appreciation of cultural influences
that have shaped the children’s own heritage.
