Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development
At Southey Green Primary School we pride ourselves on how we promote pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All National Curriculum subjects provide opportunities to promote pupil’s development as well as explicit opportunities in Religious Education, Personal, Social Health Education (PSHE) and Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). A significant contribution is also made by the school ethos, values, wider curriculum activities, assemblies and trips and visits.
Children’s spiritual development involves the growth of their sense of self, unique potential, their understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and their will to achieve. As their curiosity about themselves and their place in the world increases. Children try to answer for themselves some of life’s fundamental questions. The develop the knowledge, skills and understanding, qualities and attitudes they need to foster their own inner lives.
Moral development involves children acquiring an understanding of the difference between right and wrong of a moral conflict, a concern for others and the will to do what is right. They are able and willing to reflect on the consequences of their actions and learn how to give forgiven themselves and others. They develop the knowledge, skills and understanding, qualities and attitudes they need in order to make responsible moral decisions and act on them.
Social development involves children acquiring an understanding of the responsibilities and rights of being members of families and communities (locally and nationally). They have an ability to relate to other and to work alongside side them in a way with benefits all. Children display a sense of belonging and an increasing willingness to participate. They develop knowledge, skills, understanding, qualities and attitudes they need to become active citizens within their community.
Cultural Development involves children gaining an understanding of cultural traditions and heritage and the ability to appreciate and respond to ‘the arts’. The children will respect their own cultures and that of others. They will appreciate the interests of others and be curious about differences. They develop the knowledge, skills, understanding, qualities and attitudes they need to understand, appreciate and contribute to different cultures.

-Enable pupils to make connections between aspects of their learning
-Encouraging pupils to relate their learning to a wider frame of reference – for example, asking ‘why?’, ‘how?’ and ‘where?’ as well as ‘what?
