Beanfield Primary School

SMSC at Beanfield

At Beanfield we provide our children with many ways to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.  SMSC is not a separate subject that is taught explicitly but an aspect of learning that is present in lessons across the curriculum as well as in our extra-curricular activities and should also form part of our behaviour in school. Some lessons lend themselves more easily to SMSC development such as PSHE and RE however, we also aim to develop SMSC through our behaviour expectations and our attitudes in school.

British Values

As articulated in the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy of 2011 we have a focus on the core British values which are: Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of different faiths and belief - these form the basis of our own school values.

Through our SMSC provision we:

  • Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence.

  • Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England.

  • Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely.

  • Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England.

  • Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect their own and other cultures.

  • Encourage respect for other people.

  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect on the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.
