The spiritual, moral, social, cultural and understanding of British Values is linked to our school motto to support the children and enable them to achieve academically and personally.
At Worthinghead Primary School, we promote children's willingness to be imaginative, reflective, creative and enjoy learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
We support children with their moral development by encouraging them to be thoughtful, kind and caring citizens in the local community. Children reflect on positive behaviour and share viewpoints to ensure the ethos is encouraged with their peers.
We provide the time for children to develop social skills in a range of different contexts. We collaborate in different groups and work well together to ensure a positive environment is kept and conflicts are resolved effectively.
We ensure children have an appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that shape their identity and the ones around them. We encourage them to have a willingness to participate in different opportunities and share an interest in different faiths and cultural diversity.
Ash came into do a Loud and Proud assembly. The children learned about and listened to bhangra music. Some children had chance to try the drum. The children were then given the opportunity to try out their bhangra dance moves.
We ensure that all children are treated equally and have equal rights. The pupil voice is valued and listened to by adults. The children are represented by a strong School Council, who have impacted on decisions on recent school improvements.
Pupils are made aware of the choices that they have and the freedom to voice their own opinions in a safe environment. Children develop an awareness of their rights in their own life now and for the future.
Rule of Law
We follow our school rules but incorporating our motto into our every day lives. The whole school behaviour policy is followed by all staff and rewards children who show 'green' behaviour. Children learn that there are laws that apply to every one in Britain and failure to follow these results in consequences.
Mutual Respect and Tolerance
Mutual respect for diversity is encouraged across the whole school. Children look at a variety of cultures across the curriculum. We accept that we are all different and that our differences are what makes us individuals.
SMSC and Life in Modern Britain
The Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils has always been at the heart of our ethos. This is developed through mutual respect, good manners, partnership working and collaboration; an approach that we believe is fundamental to a full and positive participation in life in modern Britain.
The fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, have been actively promoted at Worthinghead Primary through this ethos.
