Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC)

At Upton Westlea Primary School, we have a firmly embedded set of values that are taught and lived out by the entire school community. Through regular worships, references in RE and other lessons, as well as seizing upon opportunities in other areas of the school, children are explicitly taught the 12 values of: generosity, friendship, trust, service, truthfulness, forgiveness, respect, perseverance, compassion, thankfulness, justice and courage.

Each term, opportunities to further enhance SMSC understanding are identified in teacher’s planning.

As a school, we welcome children from all backgrounds and are proud of how children and their families from other cultures are welcomed by our children and the rest of the school community.

In all teaching, the teachers look to inspire and enthuse children. Teachers look to develop a love of learning and a working atmosphere where children enjoy learning.

Children are given opportunities to take on responsibility around the school: Year 6 buddy system, playground projects, playground leaders and lunch time clubs.

The school has a clear behaviour policy that sets high expectations and promotes a good moral understanding, mutual respect, tolerance and understanding. Friendship, respect and tolerance are taught as part of our Personal, Social, Health Education program.

Through a combination of approaches, the school is able to ensure that children develop an understanding of the key British Values: Democracy, Rule of Law, Mutual Respect, Personal Liberty and Tolerance of other faiths and cultures.
