SMSC - Spiritual

  • SP1:  Students are able to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
  • SP2:  Students show a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
  • SP3: Students use imagination and creativity in their learning.
  • SP4:  Students show willingness to reflect on their experiences.

The spiritual development of all students is encouraged and supported at Bournville. Differing faiths and cultures are discussed regularly in PSHE/Guidance, through our SMSC assemblies, and through subjects such as English, Geography, History and RS. We run regular trips abroad, with visits to Spain, France and Bulgaria this year, as well as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions to Morocco and within the UK. In October 2015 we were delighted to host students from a Czech school.

A sense of fascination with the world around them is particularly encouraged in Science, Computer Science, RS and English, while our creative and performing arts subjects excel at encouraging the use of imagination and creativity in learning. All of our SMSC assemblies end with a moment for reflection, to allow students to silently reflect on their thoughts and perspectives on the matters discussed.
