At Paddock School we are fully committed to improving our students’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) mindfulness. The areas of SMSC are embedded into our Paddock Values and Expectations. We seek to equally support the students’ academic achievement alongside developing their broader character.
There are four specific areas to SMSC:
Spiritual- This encompasses our school value of being respectful of each other and our feelings. Students broaden their imagination and creativity whilst at Paddock alongside understanding other people’s beliefs and values.
Moral- At Paddock we always encourage students to recognise the difference between right and wrong, as well as understanding that negative actions have consequences. Students also spend time investigating ethical issues through the well balanced curriculum.
Social- Students adhere to the Values and Expectations of the school, participating in school activities beyond the school day as well taking part in work in the local community.
Cultural- Our students are inspired to accept, respect and celebrate diversity. They learn to appreciate difference and develop their understanding of different cultures in Paddock and beyond
