We actively promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at our school. We aim to provide a creative and immersive curriculum that is brought to life through memorable experiences such as educational visits, visitors to the school and special events to ensure pupils’ SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) development. These are integral in creating a stimulating and motivating learning environment as well as enriching and deepening pupils’ understanding of what they learn in school. We establish a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout the school.
Each half-term we have a focus school value and key festivals, events and memorable dates that are taught and/or marked during whole-school and in-class assemblies. There is also a key charity identified each term as we believe when children take part in charitable events, they learn about responsibility, generosity, helping others, making positive changes and how to engage with the local community as well as national and global issues.
Additionally, we provide weekly Personal, Social, Health and Economic education and Relationships and Health education through the 1Decision scheme of work. We teach fortnightly Religious Education lessons and Picture News sessions to discuss the local, national and global current events happening at that time. Through a high-quality SMSC curriculum, we promote the fundamental British values.
Kilburn Grange School recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom and understands the role it has in ensuring that it upholds and promotes fundamental British values. The school accepts admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or none. It follows the policies outlined by its governing body regarding equal opportunities, which guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.
The poster below outlines how the British values are promoted as an intrinsic part of our school culture and curriculum.
