Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

“Opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development are outstanding”

SIAMS Report April 2015

At Huby CE Primary school, the children and their learning are at the very heart of every decision made. SMSC is at the very heart of all we do at Huby and its impact is seen both  in and outside of the classroom. We believe strongly in a holistic education for our children, rooted in Christian values, which will equip them for life in an ever changing society.

At   Huby CE Primary School we recognise that the personal development of pupils spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve and also to relate fully to the world in which we live.  We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop:

  • their own values and beliefs whilst respecting the values and beliefs of others
  • their own spiritual awareness,
  • their own high standards of personal behaviour,
  • a positive, caring attitude towards other people,
  • an understanding of their social and cultural traditions
  • and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures
  • the difference between  right and wrong and have the skills necessary to make judgments independently and appropriately.

Our yearly schools ‘Value Book’ is a wonderful celebration of SMSC at Huby Primary school. Please call into school to take a look.

Please read our SMSC policy and some examples of how we celebrate SMSC at Huby Primary School.

British Values

At Huby Church of England Primary School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. Pupils at Huby are encouraged to embrace these values and apply them to all areas of their own lives.

What are British Values?

The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British values in the ‘Prevent Strategy’ – values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

School Council

The School Council involves children and adults as partners in decisions about the school. Being on the School Council promotes positive relationships helps children to become more confident and broadens their understanding of society.

Our School Council representatives are elected by their peers.  Each year group is represented by one council member with children in Early Years being represented by a child from year 6. The School council decides on many different issues.  Here are some of the events and activities they have decided upon:

  • Harvest produce to be donated to local food banks
  • Charities supported by the school at Christmas e.g. Martin House Hospice, Little Princess Trust, WWF
  • The outside stage area
  • Huby’s Got Talent competition
  • Cake Stalls

In 2016-17 the School Council supported a number of charities and raised nearly £3000 with the support of children,parents and staff.
