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.
Reverend Cragg, from St. Mary's Church, came to talk to the school to about David and Goliath.
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.
In year 3 and 5 the children are given the opportunity to attend a residential. Year 3 go to Kingswood for 2 nights. The carry out orienteering, bouldering, rock climbing an many more activities. Year 5 go to Buckden for 4 nights. They go caving, pony trekking, high ropes, team building, low ropes, walking, country dancing and many more. The children have lots of chances to experience new activities and lots of social time, as well as completing chores.
Christmas Nativity and Concerts
Foundation, year 1 and year 2 perform a nativity to packed crowds.
Year 3 and 4 go to St Mary's church to perform a selection of songs and readings.
Year 5 and 6 give a performance of traditional and modern songs in the school hall.
To raise money for the Year 5 residential to Buckden House and invite prospective parents for children starting nursery in September, we organised a Hallowfire Fair. Children from Year 5 were very enterprising and made products to sell. There were lots of craft activities, including cooking on the open fire in our Greenwood.
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.
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.
Our Class Councillors
Year 6 learnt about the different parties views and offers regarding the re-election in 2019. Had they been the voice of the country, they wouldn't have voted for the Conservatives.

Rule Of Law
We follow our school rules but incorporating our motto into our everyday 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 everyone in Britain and failure to follow these results in consequences.
Classes have their own rules that have been agreed by the whole class.
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.
The children learnt about the how money they raised for Sport Relief is used to support children in Britain and other countries.
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.
