Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education at Mill Ford School
We value and respect all individuals regardless of their beliefs, culture and / or religion. We encourage our pupils to respect and value others through educating them we support our pupils to understand differences and embrace and celebrate them. We encourage our pupils creativity and imagination through our teaching and their learning and we try to instill in them an enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world. We also encourage and help pupils to develop a willingness to reflect on their experiences and learning.
We monitor and evidence the work we do to develop pupils’ spirituality through learning walks, lesson observations and curriculum monitoring.
We help pupils recognize the difference between right and wrong and apply this to their life, which is reflected in our behaviour policy and PSHE education programme. We help pupils to develop their understanding that actions have consequences and an interest in exploring and offering views on moral and ethnical issues.
We monitor and evidence our work in supporting our pupils moral development by monitoring our behaviour incidents, our rewards programme and through learning walks on attitude towards behaviour and learning.
It is extremely important to us that our pupils are able to develop their social skills in a wide range on context, including socializing with pupils from a diverse range of ages, religions, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The importance of developing pupils’ social skills is reflected in our prospectus, plan on a page and rewards.
We monitor and evidence our work in supporting our pupils’ social development by monitoring our behaviour incidents, our rewards programme, IEP’s and through learning walks on attitude towards behaviour and learning.
We endeavor to develop our pupils’ interests in understanding their cultural influences and background, as well as that of others. We try to instill in pupils an interest and wish to learn, enjoy and respond to artistic, musical, mathematical, technological, scientific and cultural opportunities.
We monitor the range of opportunities pupils have to a wide range of cultural experiences and their reaction to them through curriculum monitoring and evaluating special events.
