Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC)
At Greenhill, we attach great importance to the development of the children’s spiritual and moral values. These, together with the development of their social skills, will enable them to build relationships with other children and with adults and to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. We also seek to develop and promote children’s cultural awareness by providing a rich variety of activities and experiences as part of their wider curriculum.
We are recognised within our community for establishing a secure, caring and industrious environment, in which children can achieve their full potential and develop friendships and a sense of belonging. We work hard to ensure that all our children acquire a high level of self-esteem and knowledge of themselves.
The DfE have reinforced the need ‘to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’ At Greenhill Primary School these values are promoted regularly and we will actively challenge children, staff or parents who express opinions that are contrary to fundamental British values including extremists views.
