As St John’s, we recognise that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children plays a significant part in their ability to grow, learn and achieve.
As a Church of England school, our curriculum provides opportunities for the pupils to explore and progress their knowledge and understanding of Christian beliefs, whilst developing a deeper understanding of the cultural diversity, traditions and richness of other world faiths. We also fully promote positive attitudes towards behaviour for learning through our ‘Growth Mindset’ culture and reinforce the importance of leading active and healthy lifestyles.
We teach SMSC in a variety of ways; through our programme of collective worship, as a discrete subject, RE lessons, humanities subjects, English, maths, science, as well as through educational visits, charitable fundraising and community activities. This ensures that our children are able to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
