SMSC

Our school has a thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Spiritual

Pupils explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Moral

Pupils get the opportunity to recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.

Social

Pupils can use a range of social skills; participate in the local community; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the ‘British values’ of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.

Cultural

Through our programmes, pupils can learn to appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain’s parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

At Coal Clough Academy, we implement a system of ‘Personalised Learning’. This means that each and every pupil gets the exact experience that they need to progress.
