The Silverwood Beliefs and Values curriculum encourages pupils to grapple with some of the big spiritual topics: forgiveness, love, gratitude, ritual and mourning. We explore beliefs and values, from around the world and within our school, through stories and multisensory activities which are differentiated to meet the needs of individual pupils. Pupils will experience opportunities to explore and develop curiosity about their own values and those of others around the world. They will be encouraged to debate and discuss the ideas they encounter, in an effort to promote philosophical thinking and a tolerance for other people’s beliefs. These experiences will enable them to be actively involved in their learning and develop positive relationships as they adhere to moral values and discover their role in promoting community cohesion and inclusion in our increasingly diverse society.
