The following values permeate our planning in both the core and foundation subjects:

  • Helping children recognise and value their individuality and grow in self-esteem and confidence.

  • Encourage children to be curious, imaginative, creative and resilient.

  • Make learning relevant and enjoyable for each child.

  • Promote tolerance and sensitivity towards others and ensure they respect themselves and the beliefs and opinions of others.

  • Develop a spiritual awareness and sense of awe and wonder about the world.

In all lessons, an element of SMSC is planned for ensuring that these values are constantly being developed and referred to, enabling the pupils at The Craylands School to be prepared for living in modern Britain.
