SMCS/PHSE/RE/Children's Rights

At Castle, we are invested in supporting not only the academic progress of each child, but also unlocking their potential through nurturing their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development (SMCS).

 

The four strands of SMCS are:

Spiritual: Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Moral: Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views and have an appreciation of British Values.

Cultural: Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

Social: Investigate moral issues; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the fundamental values of British democracy.

We embed the principles of SMCS in our learning and teaching throughout the curriculum.
