SMSC and wider world

At Celtic Cross Curriculum we have determined 'British Values' to be:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs


As schools we aim to develop and nurture these by:

  • Planning an engaging assembly programme with core ethical values and beliefs at its heart.
  • A well-structured curriculum including PSHE, Citizenship and Beliefs and Ethics.
  • An effective and well-mannered School Council enabling pupils to actively participate in the democratic process.
  • Promoting diversity through collapsed curriculum events.
  • A broad and balanced curriculum that addresses many of these core values across a range of subjects.
  • Having a clearly communicated and consistently applied Behaviour Policy so that pupils understand what is expected of them and the consequences of both meeting and failing to meet these expectations.
  • Adopting restorative approaches, where possible, to resolve any difficulties between member of our school community.
  • Having a rigorous commitment to pupil safety ( for example: Child Protection/ Safeguarding procedures, Heath and Safety procedures, Staff code of Conduct and Teacher Standards).
