SMSC, British Moral Values and Global Citizenship

We aim to support our Rise Parkers to develop in many diverse aspects of life.  Careful analysis and discussion about our pupils’ backgrounds and life experiences, have helped us to identify four key drivers which underpin our curriculum and wider offer:

The Key Drivers:

  • Knowledge of the world
  • Possibilities and enquiry
  • Emotional awareness

By focusing on the key drivers across both the curriculum and wider aspects of school life, we help to equip our Rise Parkers to successfully meet the challenges of the next stage in their education and lives:

We are proud to provide access to a wide, rich set of experiences, from swimming at the local pool, to visiting historic sites in areas of outstanding natural beauty.  Carefully planned and well-sequenced enrichment activities across the core and wider curriculum, and extra-curricular clubs, encourage a love of learning for all.  They also make it more memorable and fun to support retention!  Our provision tracker ensures that uptake of these opportunities is strong, particularly for our disadvantaged pupils.

We are proud that our curriculum gives our Rise Parkers the confidence and self-belief to lead a happy and fulfilled life, each taking their own ‘Steps to Success’ whilst being reflective and proud of their own individual identities.  Our pupils are proud of their British Values, Global Citizenship skills and the diverse society to which they belong and play an active part.  Our key driver foci ensure that SMSC development, fundamental British values and Global Citizenship skills are at the heart of all we do.  Read on for further examples of implementation and impact…
