Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural


In Moor Row Primary School we recognise the importance of promoting the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of all pupils by providing a range of experience both within the formal curriculum, through the ethos of the school and through interactions with the adults within our school community.

We are developing a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects the individual needs of our pupils whilst representing the diversity of the world.  This curriculum is enhanced by regular enrichment activities such as visits, visitors and activity days and is responsive to changing needs.

Examples of our work to promote SMSC include:

  • A forest school programme that develops important social skills and supports pupils in working together to complete tasks of varying complexity
  • A Pupil Behaviour Policy based upon a system of rights and responsibilities
  • Promoting the six core values, respect, hope and aspiration, tolerance, unity, responsibility and honesty

  • A Religious Education curriculum that covers a range of faiths
  • The opportunity for all Key Stage 1 pupils to develop performance skills and confidence in the annual U-Dance Festival
