The Prevent Strategy
The ‘Prevent’ Strategy at Bishopshalt School
Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development, RSE and Citizenship
The promotion of SMSC development is ingrained throughout all aspects of our school. This fundamental aspect of learning is delivered through our Tutor Time programme, our Enrichment activities, Student Leadership and our 5 designated drop down days each year. We believe in preparing students for life, and therefore we ensure we teach of students’ roles in their school, local, national and global societies, their understanding of right and wrong, our development of their joy in their learning, and the development of their understanding of culture in its widest sense. Consequently the students’ personal development is impressive and the school is a cohesive community.
Promoting British Values at Bishopshalt
At Bishopshalt we embrace our wider role in preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum. Part of our role in that preparation is ensuring that we promote and reinforce British values to our students. The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and considered them to be democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. At Bishopshalt these values are reinforced in an explicit manner, are woven through our curriculum and permeate the school community.
