SMSC and British Values

Happy days   Bright futures

Each child’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, as well as the promotion of British values (democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, respect and tolerance)  underpin everything we do at West Ewell Primary School and is of central importance to us all. This can be seen through our mission statement and our 5Rs learning approach: respect, reflection, resilience, resourcefulness and responsibility. 

Spiritual Development

Exploring beliefs and experience; respecting faiths, feelings and values; enjoying learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; using imagination and creativity; reflecting.

Moral Development

Recognising right and wrong; respecting the law; understanding consequences; investigating moral and ethical issues; offering reasoned views.

Social Development

Using a range of social skills; participating in the local community; appreciating diverse viewpoints; participating, volunteering and cooperating; resolving conflict; engaging with the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.


Appreciating cultural influences; appreciating the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participating in culture opportunities; understanding, celebrating, accepting and respecting diversity.
