Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development

1. Our ethos, vision and mission statement takes into account the SMSC guidance and global learning. 
2. Our curriculum statement is linked to the SMSC statement.
3.  Each class has the opportunity each year to perform to the rest of the school and their parents through a class assembly and annual KS performances. We have good inter-school links and as a school have taken over the organization of the local
inter-school sporting fixtures along with Chipping Campden School. We work with
the other local primary schools on music performances every year. There are
opportunities for children to work alongside children from other local schools at
the various G and T events that are organized by the cluster for Maths and Science.
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.
We promote a tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles through the effective spiritual, moral social and cultural development of pupils, including through the extent to which our school engage our pupils in extra-curricular activities and volunteering in the local community.

At Mickleton through regular worships, references in RE and other lessons as well
as seizing upon opportunities in other areas of the school children are taught the
values of SMSC.

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: Y6
reading buddy system, office helpers, assembly monitors, class monitors,
gardening projects, playground sports leaders ( huff and puff) , house leaders, school council and after school clubs.

The school has a clear behaviour policy that sets high expectations and promotes a
good moral understanding, mutual respect, tolerance and understanding.
