The Lyppard Grange Primary School Empowering children to be secure, engaged and equipped for life.



At Lyppard Grange Primary School we recognise that the personal development of our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural values (SMSC) plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We aim to empower children with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage life’s challenges and make the most of opportunities. We provide children with the tools they need to understand how to take care of themselves, physically and mentally by teaching children how they can stay safe in the real world and thrive in the ever-changing environment around us. Our vision is for all children to have a deep and connected knowledge and understanding of where they came from, who they are and what they might become. 



Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development is promoted regularly and holistically by all members of staff and pupils, and embedded into all areas of school life. It is promoted in the day to day life of our school through the ethos of our school, and through the development of positive attitudes and values encompassing everything that happens in the school day.



The spiritual development of pupils is shown by their:

• ability to be reflective about their own beliefs (religious or otherwise) and perspective on life

• knowledge of, and respect for, different people’s faiths, feelings and values

• sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them

• use of imagination and creativity in their learning

• willingness to reflect on their experiences


The moral development of pupils is shown by their:

• ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong and to readily apply this understanding in their own lives, recognise legal boundaries and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England

• understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions

• interest in investigating and offering reasoned views about moral and ethical issues and ability to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues.


The social development of pupils is shown by their:

• use of a range of social skills in different contexts, for example working and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds

• willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings, including by volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively

• acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; they develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.


The cultural development of pupils is shown by their:

• understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and that of others

• understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures in the school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain

• ability to recognise, and value, the things we share in common across cultural, religious, ethnic and socio-economic communities

• knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system and its central role in shaping our history and values, and in continuing to develop Britain

• willingness to participate in and respond positively to artistic, musical, sporting and cultural opportunities

• interest in exploring, improving understanding of and showing respect for different faiths and cultural diversity and the extent to which they understand, accept and respect diversity. This is shown by their respect and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development is the over-arching umbrella that encompasses personal development across the whole curriculum.



At the end of the children's primary school journey, they will be able to look back fondly on an interesting and happy primary education, proud of their successes and self-disciplined. We want them to be able to recognise and reflect on their hard work and success, leave with strong confident friendships, and with empathy and compassion to encourage and perhaps lead others. We want the foundation to have been laid for them to be a responsible member of society, interested in the world around them and keen to make a positive contribution to society.
