Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC)

At Flamborough CE Primary School, we recognise that the personal development of pupils plays a significant role in their ability to learn, achieve and thrive as they grow up in modern British society. We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive, caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of a range of cultures.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure that our pupils have the opportunity to learn and reflect on the British values that underpin our lives and to recognise the valuable role that they play as emerging citizens in British society.
