At Lingfield Primary School, our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is actively promoted within the curriculum, as well as through the ethos of the school and the fostering of positive values and attitudes.
Spiritual Development: Our children are taught about themselves, others and the world around them to inspire and develop their sense of enjoyment and fascination. We explore different people’s faiths, feelings and values to enable individuals to reflect on their own beliefs and develop an informed, respectful viewpoint of the beliefs of others.
Moral Development: School rules and expectations enable our children to understand the difference between right and wrong. Consistent use of our behaviour procedures and Best Practice Guidance, by all staff, ensures that children fully understand the consequences of their behaviour and actions and know what is required of them in respecting the civil and criminal law of England. Our Home-School Agreement makes these expectations explicit. We encourage children to investigate moral and ethical issues, offer reasoned views and understand and appreciate those with differing viewpoints.
Social Development: To enable our pupils to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain, we develop social skills through working and socialising with and alongside others from a variety of different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. We learn to co-operate well with others and resolve conflicts effectively. Children learn how their own community works, as well as how the wider society and other communities function.
Cultural Development: We explore and develop an understanding and respect for cultural diversity. We celebrate the range of different cultures within our school and share knowledge and experience within the community. Our pupils are provided with opportunities to participate in artistic, musical, sporting and cultural activities; achievements in these areas are regularly shared and celebrated in whole school assemblies. We also develop an appreciation of cultural influences that have shaped our children’s own heritage.
