SMSC and British Values

We are currently reviewing our Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural and British Values policy along with our new PSHE policy. Ensuring that they are embedded into our new PSHE curriculum as well as the whole school curriculum.

At St Matthew’s, we have always promoted SMSC, British Values along with our own Christian values that develop the children the personal development of the children in our school.

Fundamental British Values

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs


The provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. This is supported by close links with the church and other faith communities in the area.

The pupils are confident, friendly, pleasant and welcoming. They respect each other and are ready to compliment each other on their work. For example, when the inspector was discussing a display that a pupil had prepared at home, others came to say how good it was and how impressed they were.
