At Someries Infant and Nursery School, My Big Voice sessions are held on a weekly basis to develop our pupils’ ability to answer ‘big’ questions and to develop their moral and social awareness.
These sessions are also focused on developing pupils’ ethical intelligence as well as their ability to debate topical issues at an age-appropriate level.
Our My Big Voice sessions are one way in which we promote British values and the development of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. You can find further details regarding other aspects of our work in these areas below.
At Someries Infant and Nursery School we recognise that the personal development of children – spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC) – plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide a broad and balanced education that provides children with inherent opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, their own spiritual awareness, their own high expectations of personal behaviour, a positive, caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of their cultures.
As a school, we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs as part of our provision of SMSC.
