The personal development of our children is the key to their success in school and beyond. 


SMSC - Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

At school we embed SMSC in all aspects of our school life. Our definitions for SMSC are:- 

Spiritual: The opportunity to explore beliefs, experience and faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity and reflect on experiences.

Moral: The opportunity to learn what is right and wrong and respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues and offer reasoned views.

Social: The opportunity to use a range of social skills to participate in the local community and beyond; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict.

Cultural: The opportunity to explore and appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain’s parliamentary system; participate in cultural opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.


We promote 'British Values' at every level, including through our SMSC and PSHE/RSE curriculum.

Promoting Fundamental British Values at Dinnington Community Primary School

At school we aim to 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.
