Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development at Ticehurst and Flimwell

SMSC, particularly spiritual development, lies at the heart of the curriculum of Ticehurst and Flimwell School, where it takes place in the context of Christian values. It plays an important part in helping our children learn the difference between right and wrong, helping them to develop sound social skills and to make a positive contribution in community life; they also help our children to recognise the value and richness of cultural diversity in Britain. Our school provides an atmosphere and understanding that encourages respect and acceptance of cultural diversity, whilst keeping a commitment to the development and awareness and understanding of their Christian and cultural heritage; the Christian character of our school.

Daily Collective worship

  • provides opportunities for spiritual development enabling pupils to celebrate goodness and beauty and to express thankfulness for the joy of being alive;
  • gives time for silent reflection and exploration of inner space
  • provides a rich variety of forms of expression through music, drama, story and art.
  • classroom teachers can build opportunities for reflection, stillness and quiet times for pupils to share experiences - good or bad - and to use stories to promote spiritual development.
