SMSC and British Values

At Arrow Vale we give conscious endeavour to ensure that we develop students’ moral, social, cultural and spiritual selves. This underpins all that we do, formally and informally, in the curriculum and beyond, as members of our community. The aim is to ensure students have conscious understanding of themselves, and that they develop a set of personal values as citizens.

As a school within the Central Region Schools Trust, we develop these in a family of schools with a diversity of situation and intake. Student interactions between the schools in the family, here in Redditch, in Worcester, in Kidderminster, in the Black Country and in Birmingham are frequent.  The Trust’s enrichment guarantee has a strong content focus on SMSC development for our young people.


Our aim is to develop students’ character – in particular their resilience and their confidence, as well as the academic knowledge and understanding, and specific and employability skills, so that they can thrive in the world beyond school, whilst they are at school, and of course when they go on from us post-18.


The booklet (click link) outlines the inputs across the curriculum and wider that enable a strong development of students’ conscious spiritual self, the development of their moral compass, and social and cultural skills, knowledge and understanding.
