SMSC Policy 2019SMSC/ BRITISH VALUES
At Chislehurst School for Girls, we believe in increasing the life chances of children by improving their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural skills, in order to fully prepare them for life in modern Britain. The key British values of Individual Liberty, Democracy, Freedom of Speech and Respect for the values and integrity of other faiths, beliefs and genders lies at the very heart of our vision.
Our aims are:
To ensure that each student is valued and respected so that they can develop into happy and confident young people with spiritual awareness and sense of reflection. (Spiritual)
To nurture students who demonstrate traditional values of respect and courtesy. To develop students that are interdependent, responsible and show respect and tolerance for all, regardless of their faith, race or sexual orientation. (Moral)
To develop students in becoming active citizens who are ready to thrive in the outside world. To nurture a sense of pride in our school community and promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty. To develop students who contribute and work with individuals, groups and the wider society. (Social)
To affirm personal enterprise, inclusion and wellbeing. To encourage participation in the school and wider community and develop students who are lifelong learners. To prepare students for life in a multi-cultural society by helping them to appreciate their own cultural traditions and those of other cultures.
