At Ainderby Church of England Primary School we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.  We aim to deliver an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour and a positive, caring attitude towards others.  We aim to help them achieve an understanding of social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of their cultures.

The school curriculum aims to foster pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for opportunities, responsibilities and expectations in life.  We will promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different beliefs and faith.

Moral values, principles and spirituality will be explored throughout the curriculum and especially in R.E. and collective worship.  Our school has very strong community links to St Helen’s Church. The integrity and spirituality of all faiths will be respected and explored.  Pupils are given access to alternative views and a diversity of spiritual traditions.

We closely link SMSC with our PSHE scheme of work. Our PSHE scheme of work is Kapow.
