Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education and Relationships and Health Education

At Castleway Primary School we believe that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, mentally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We aim to provide an inspiring education providing opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, alongside learning about and respecting others and the community we live in. Creative and imaginative opportunities are provided that inform their perspective on life and create a sense of enjoyment in learning about themselves and the wider world.

We have consistent, high expectations of behaviour which enables children to recognise the difference between right and wrong. We have a personal link with our community police officers who visit to ensure that our children learn and understand the criminal law and show respect to others in the community. Our school council allows children to discuss moral and ethical issues, understanding and appreciating the viewpoints of others.

Pupils are encouraged to develop and use a range of social skills through a variety of activities and opportunities. Castleway Primary School aims to promote a positive relationship with the wider community and we welcome a range of visitors to discuss and enhance understanding of the wider world and life in modern Britain.

Children at Castleway Primary School are developing their understanding and appreciation of life in modern Britain today and cultural opportunities are provided to improve understanding and to show respect for different faiths, genders, disabilities and cultures.
