SMSC and British Values

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) enrichment

At St Dominic’s School we recognise that the personal development of our pupils and students plays a significant part in their ability to “achieve ambitious goals and live life to the full”.  As such, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) enrichment of our pupils and students is at the heart of the school’s ethos.  Please see the below link for information on how all the subjects contributes to our pupils and students SMSC enrichment.

British Values

At St Dominic’s School we aim to provide all pupils and students with an environment that allows them to:

  • Achieve ambitious goals and live life to the full.
  • Understand the world they live in and the important part they play in their school, local and wider community.
  • Develop an understanding of what it means to be British and the extent British values are similar and or different to the values and laws of other countries.
  • Promote pupils’ and students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. 

At St Dominic’s School, and in line with the individual pupils and students capacity to understand the concepts and ideas, we work together to promote pupils and students understanding of what “being British” means and actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

For further information on how we promote the British Values please see below:
