Middlewich High School

Excellence in Learning – Achievement for All

SMSC & Citizenship

How do we Embrace British Values at MHS?



Citizenship, SMSC and British Values

In order to develop the whole individual and genuinely prepare our learners for a changing world, we strive as a learning community to nurture our young people's sense of citizenship and to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development at every opportunity.  We also endeavour to ensure that our learners have regular opportunities, both through the curriculum and the wider life of our school, to reflect on and demonstrate the values that underpin British society and life.

These values include:

  • Equality and Respect
  • Tolerance and Celebration of Diversity
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Democracy and the Rule of Law
  • Citizenship and Community
  • Kindness and Consideration

British Values in Practice at MHS

These values are at the heart of everything we do as a learning community: they underpin our guiding principles and drive our curriculum, our policy‐making, our action‐planning and the day‐to‐day life of our school at all levels.  These values can be observed in many aspects of our daily school life, both through the formal curriculum and wider school life including:

  • Tutor Time and Assemblies
  • Curriculum WRL
  • Student Leadership and Student Voice
  • Visits, Visitors and International Links
  • Charitable Activities and Community Service

The Values of MHS Learners

Our promotion of SMSC and British values across the curriculum and wider school life is a priority and the success of this can be measured through the behaviour, attitudes and habits of our learners.  Our young people are the best advert we have for our success as a learning community.  Learners at Middlewich High School constantly prove themselves to be respectful, responsible, tolerant, caring and confident individuals who are actively preparing themselves to take their place in a changing world.
