Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural


SMSC Policy Statement

The extensive ways in which we promote British Values can be found here.

At St. Peter’s we are very proud of the Christian values which underpin our work!

“The provision of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school. Displays around the school visually promote this at every opportunity. For example, each corridor is labelled to reinforce a value or an ambition and emphasises the aspirational ethos which pervades the school. Pupils regularly walk up progress avenue, cooperation alley or achievement road on their way to lessons, assembly or out to play.”

OFSTED Feb 2016

“The broad, balanced and well-planned curriculum and a commitment to Christian values complements the promotion of British values and the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral social and cultural awareness. Pupils are asked to consider how moral values have changed over time within their topic linked to Victorian Britain or discuss and debate moral issues linked to current affairs, such as the refugee crisis.”

OFSTED Feb 2016

“The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Peter’s School as a Church of England school are outstanding.”
