Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural aspects of learning

 

The Cheadle Academy strives to provide an education to all our students that provides opportunities to develop individual values and beliefs, alongside spiritual awareness and a high standard of personal conduct and behaviour. 

It is also important that our students develop into positive caring young people who respect their community, others viewpoints and cultural traditions. Our SMSC provision across the Academy strives to instil these values.

Provision

 

All areas of The Cheadle Academy contribute to our students spiritual, moral, social and cultural development by:-

Through our classroom teaching we aim to provide opportunities for students to:-

 

  • Work co-operatively with one another;
  • Consider and respect the needs of others;
  • Share and celebrate achievements (both inside and outside of the academy)
  • Treat all as equals, accepting people who are different because of physical and learning difficulties
  • Show empathy towards other
  • Develop self esteem
  • Respect others
  • Express ideas and beliefs

 

Pastoral

Our Senior staff , Year Leaders , and tutors deliver a programme of assemblies and themed weeks that incorporate our SMSC values.

In addition to the ‘thought for the week’, each topic also has a themed numeracy activity (provided by the maths department) that students are encouraged to work through. The academy also subscribes to a weekly news quiz that students discuss during form time. News providers (suitable for our students) are also encouraged (such as http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround)

SMSC Beyond the classroom

  • The Cheadle Academy School Council has worked on a range of SMSC topics and has cascaded their knowledge to peers and to other groups of students, particularly our primary partners.  For example, the building of an anti-bullying charter in conjunction with partner schools’ school councils.
  • The School Council and other students from each year group that have demonstrated an ability to lead have also worked on the Commonwealth Challenges set by TCA in conjunction with the local council. 
  • Students regally volunteer to assist with the PTFA events held in school and the community
  • The Cheadle Academy offers our KS4 students the opportunity to participate in the DofE programme.
