SMSC and British Values
According to Ofsted, British values are:
- the rule of law;
- individual liberty;
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
At Shears Green Infant School the teaching of SMSC and 'British values' is embedded in our curriculum ( for example though PSHE, English, Science, History, etc.) as well as our school ethos. For examples of how we support the development of all areas of SMSC as well as promoting 'British values' click on the link below.
As a team we decided that each year group would focus on a charity each year. This will help the children to "understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely". The year twos have set the bar very high with their first fundraising event!
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Year 2 have begun their S.M.S.C. topic by hosting a coffee morning for MacMillan Cancer Trust. The children took the lead in every aspect of this event including writing 'to do' lists, gathering resources, baking cakes and making decorations.
They were fantastic hosts and the morning was enjoyed by all.
As a year group we raised an outstanding £281.86! - A huge Thank You to everyone who attended and so generously supported us through donations of cakes, treats and money.
