Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development at Shawley

At Shawley we believe that it is essential for all children to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This is not a subject to be taught at a set time each day or week, it is integrated into all we do and teach. We aim to ensure children become valuable members of both their immediate and global community. We are a 'Healthy School' and through Science, PE, PSHE and other areas of our curriculum we promote both physical and emotional well-being.

 

Spiritual

Explore beliefs and experience; respect values; discover oneself and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity.

 We believe that children need to arrive at their own personal spiritual and moral beliefs and values, through understanding and questioning. As in all other subject areas, the teaching of R.E. must be related to the ages and abilities of the children being taught. No member of staff will promote one religion or set of beliefs in preference to any other and the beliefs of each child and every family will be respected. Parents will be fully informed of their rights to withdraw their child from Religious Education lessons. However in line with the principles established by Surrey SACRE, the curriculum will be structured to try to ensure all pupils will be able to attend RE teaching.

 

Moral

Recognise right and wrong; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.

 Though our restorative approach to any behavioural or relationship issues within our school we encourage children to reflect on right and wrong decisions. We have clear and consistent rewards for children who are choosing to do the right thing. Equally there are clear and consistent sanctions for any individuals who choose to do the wrong thing.

 

Social

Use social skills in different contexts; work well with others; resolve conflicts; understand how communities work.

We encourage children to attend extra-curricular activities as a way to socialise with children from other classes and year groups. We also frequently rotate learning partners so that children are given the opportunity to work alongside children with a range of abilities and opinions throughout the year.

 

Cultural

Appreciate cultural influences; participate in cultural opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

We encourage children to celebrate diversity within our own school community and beyond. As a school we follow current events from around the world and we learn about countries and cultures that differ from our own.

Shawley School Award Winners

We have recently started awarding children with VIP (Very Important Pupil) Lanyards when they have excelled at something. We are particularly looking for children who promote the school values and are excellent role models to others in terms of following the school rules.

Our most recent VIP awards have gone to:

Skarlett (Chestnut) - for always being kind, thoughtful and caring towards everyone. She is a supportive and encouraging learning partner who is always polite and helpful.

Georgia (Fir) - for the kindness she shows to others. She has a thoughtful nature, beautiful manners and is friendly to everyone. Georgia displays an excellent attitude towards learning and takes pride and care with all aspects of her work.

What parents are saying about us

Shawley is a caring environment where every child is known to all, even from the early days of the Reception year. The older children are taught to respect the little ones; the little ones know and trust the older ones. Personal and emotional development, as well as academic progression, are intrinsic to the success of this warm, secure school which, although located in the heart of Epsom Downs, retains a "village-like" feel.

John & Glynis Wheeler, Parents

Shawley has given our son the best possible start in school life. All the teachers throughout the school seem to have a real passion and enthusiasm for teaching. The school has an enthusiastic and thriving Fundraising Committee, consistently striving to raise funds for extra equipment and facilities for the children.
