Matthew 5 v16
Our Core Christian Values
The opportunity to love and learn about yourself, to mature as a human being, to open up to the full experiences life has to offer. To fulfil a sense of wellbeing and have the ability to break down barriers.
One who is honest says only what is the truth and does only what is right, as Jesus taught us to do.
Forgiveness that is genuine and from the heart, received as well as given, brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.
We accept people for who they are, even when they are different to us or we don't agree with them. Having respect builds feelings of trust, safety and wellbeing.
The commitment and dedication to each other, allowing respect and trust to flourish.
We love God and each other with trust, acceptance for who they are and support each other.

SMSC at Grindleton CE (VA) Primary School
What is SMSC?
SMSC stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.
All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.
How did SMSC originate?
SMSC development results from the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child - Articles 1-42 state the rights of every child and Articles 43-54 state how adults and governments should work together to ensure all children get their rights. The UK ratified Convention on the Rights of the Child on 16th December 1991 show where all adults have the responsibility to secure the rights of the child.
