SMSC and British Values
According to Ofsted, British values are:
the rule of law;
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 through 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".
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Year 2 enjoy hosting a coffee morning for MacMillan Cancer Trust every September. The children take the lead in every aspect of this event including writing 'to do' lists, gathering resources, baking cakes and making decorations as well as promoting the event through posters and invitations.
The children make fantastic hosts and the morning is always well attended and enjoyed by all!
