SMSC - Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural
We aim to provide pupils with a rich, wide range of experiences that promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. By the time pupils leave Starks Field in Year 6, they will have had the opportunity to visit a building of historical, cultural or spiritual significance, be part of a school production, learn a musical instrument, go on a bus, train or boat, visit central London, apply for a job, visit an art gallery or museum, spend a night away from home, support a younger child and ride a bike.
We endeavour to provide a wide range of visits to enhance and enrich the curriculum as well as bringing in storytellers, theatre workshops and authors. Theme weeks, such as Art Week, Science Week or Diversity Week, provide opportunities for the school to be immersed in a subject or aspect of learning/citizenship.
Throughout the curriculum opportunities to celebrate the rich diversity of the school are exploited. Tolerance and respect are encouraged within the context of promoting fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.
