Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural Development

Schools have the responsibility to promote the spiritual moral, social and cultural development of pupils. This is a complex responsibility enshrined in education law.

The spiritual, moral, social and cultural elements of pupils’ development are inter-related with much overlap between them, not least in respect of spirituality and its links to pupils’ attitudes, morals, behaviour in society, and cultural understanding. Sandridge strives to  provide an environment in which pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development can flourish. The climate and values of Sandridge School are evident from the moment one enters it: whether it is welcoming, keen to help the visitor, and proud of the achievement of those who work and learn there. Integral to good practice is the promotion of a drive for learning and respect for reflective responses.
