Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development

Our school provides a context for spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning and experiences. Pupils will have the opportunity to experience different aspects of society within a clear and consistent moral framework developing mutual respect and tolerance for each other. Our young people are given opportunities to make informed choices to develop leadership skills, to take responsibility and to consider the consequences of their actions now and in the future.

These aspects are embedded across the curriculum, recognising and reinforcing core British values and our school values.
