SMSC and British Values



At Markland Hill we promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils. Find out more below: 


In our school, we use a range of social skills; participate in and contribute to the local community; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; use manners; engage with the 'British Values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.


At Markland Hill we will respect the law and we understand and learn right from wrong; we understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views and justify our opinions.


We spend time exploring beliefs; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about ourselves, others and the surrounding world; we use our imagination and creativity; and reflect upon our learning and experiences.


We are appreciative of cultural influences; we appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.
