Our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development

Our ‘Cultural Capital’ curriculum is a way to “celebrate and embrace the different backgrounds, heritage, language and traditions of all the children living in this country.” It is to develop a well-rounded child with a strong moral compass.

We promote this through:

  • Links with the local community
  • Social development
  • School value
  • Cultural Capital Passports


Links with the local community

  • Attend village events
  • Invite speakers/visitors into school
  • Provide after school clubs run by local residents
  • Support the local shop


Social development

Our school is a unique and inclusive place to learn. In addition to the National Curriculum coverage, we feel that children should be given the opportunities to develop life skills that enable them to achieve well as individuals in all walks of society. We aim to provide opportunities for our children to identify and develop individual talents.

We promote this through:

  • School council
  • School clubs
  • Links with schools outside our local community


School values

Our school Values are:


  • To forgive others
  • To work a team
  • To show resilience
  • To be helpful and kind
  • To be curious
  • To be creative


These values run through each lesson and everyday school life. During the school week, children take part in project work to ensure and develop collaborative learning.

As a value based school, praise is given to the children who exhibit our values through the school week. Weekly assemblies are used as a time to reflect on each school value and the weekly Soaring High assembly will celebrate these achievements.
