Growing and Achieving together


Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development 


Moral development is about giving children opportunities across the curriculum to explore and develop moral concepts and values such as personal rights and responsibilities, truth, justice, equality of opportunity, right and wrong. To show consideration and kindness, and to respond appropriately to the needs, feelings and opinions of others. To understand the consequence of their behaviour and actions and to respect the civil and criminal law of England.
