At Brockmoor Primary School we are RESPECTFUL and REFLECTIVE members of society. We firmly believe that spiritual, moral, social, cultural (SMSC) development enriches each subject. The ASPIRE values of Brockmoor are an essential ingredient of our school success. We ASPIRE to ensure that the development of SMSC and British Values underpins everything we do. Brockmoor is a safe and nurturing environment that supports children to feel confident to express and reflect on their views, and the views of others. SMSC at Brockmoor will ensure that all children are equipped with the necessary skills to become successful members of our community.
(SMSC) plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop. Our staff model the importance of being a reflective citizen and excellent SMSC values are threaded through our school ethos and daily life. Through daily discussions, careful planning of vocabulary and questioning, children have the opportunity to explore values and beliefs and the ways in which they impact on people’s lives. Extra-curricular clubs and enriching experiences that promote fundamental British values are provided throughout the year across all year groups. Opportunities to demonstrate how democracy works is present through all subjects by valuing children’s view and ensuring that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to. Democracy is further explored through school council and fair voting processes in school.
