SMSC & British Values


AT CES Mangaf we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We aim to provide an education that provides students with opportunities to explore their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their cultural and social traditions and an appreciation of diversity and richness of other cultures. This is embedded throughout all aspects of school life.

Spiritual Development

Pupils’ spiritual development is shown by their:

Ability to reflect on their own beliefs and respect other people’s feelings and values.
Sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
Use of imagination and creativity.
Willingness to reflect on their experiences.

Moral Development

Pupils’ moral development is shown by their:

Ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong.
Ability to understand the consequences of their behaviour and actions.
Their interest in investigating moral and ethical issues, and being able to appreciate the viewpoints of others.

Social Development

Pupils’ social development is shown by their:

Use of a range of skills in different contexts, including working with pupils from different backgrounds
Willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings.
Acceptance of the British value of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect of those with different beliefs.

Cultural Development

Pupils’ cultural development is shown by their:

Understanding of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and that of others.
Understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and further afield.
Knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system.
Willingness to participate in artistic, sporting and cultural opportunities.
Interest in exploring, improving and showing respect for different beliefs and cultural diversity. They can celebrate diversity and display tolerance to different ethnic and socio economic groups.

Staff at CES Mangaf recognise the importance of SMSC, and have embedded all aspects of this in their curriculums and activities.

British Values

We have a responsibility to promote and encourage a culture and ethos that upholds these values through PSHE, assemblies and throughout the school in the following ways:


The student council is democratically elected.
Questionnaires are used to help run the school effectively.
Year 11 students design their own leavers jacket.

Rule of Law:

Rules are set for good reasons and must be adhered to.
School rules and expectations are clear, fair and regularly promoted through assemblies and within the classroom.
Pupils apply to become Prefects, and they help with upholding our rules.
Pupils are encouraged to make the right decisions through our rewards system and counselling.
We have zero tolerance for bullying, aggression and abuse within our school community.
Individual Liberty
We create a positive culture so that children are safe, and where choices and freedoms are encouraged.
Pupils can choose from a range of afterschool clubs.
Pupils are supported to develop their self esteem and confidence.
Pupils take responsibility for their actions.
Pupils are encouraged to exercise their rights safely.
Vulnerable students are protected and stereotypes challenged.

Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different beliefs

This is at the core of school life. Staff, students and parents are expected to interact with each other in a respectful manner.

Through PSHE and assemblies, pupils are encouraged to discuss and respect differences between people such as ethnicity, disability and gender.
