Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education Policy

At Larks Hill School we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We 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 and a positive, caring attitude towards others. We aim to help them achieve an understanding of social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of their cultures.

The school curriculum in its entirety aims to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for opportunities, responsibilities and expectations in life.
