Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) aspects of learning contribute to all areas of school life here at Woodlands. We believe it is vitally important that our learners are able to succeed in our ever changing society and are able to take into account the diverse array of beliefs and cultures in modern Britain, which they will encounter throughout their lives. As a school we are required to provide for the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development of our pupils. The British Government defines these as:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs.

SMSC development at Woodlands illustrates the ethics and values of the school community, including governors, parents and the wider community and is reflected throughout our ethos, policies, curriculum and assemblies
