SMSC Development

OUR COMMITMENT TO SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

 

At school, we are consistently developing each child’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning. This is evident throughout the day and can be seen through our topics, visits and other activities; we encourage our parents to get involved at home with these areas by promoting tolerance, independence and extra-curricular interests, as well as developing them as an active British citizen and a positive Islamic role model for the community. In this section you can view how we enjoy doing this at school.

SOME EVENTS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS 

anti-bullying week 

 

The week of 16th - 20th November is Anti-Bullying Week which is marked with special activities and events throughout the school. This puts an extra emphasis on our "zero tolerance for bullying" policy.

One of the activities this week was for each child to design an anti-bullying poster. A winner would be be selected from each year group and their poster would then be displayed on our Anti-Bullying Board. Well done to all children for taking part and we will look forward to hearing about the winners!

 

ROAD SAFETY WEEK 

 

During Road Safety Week, the Paradise children took part in various learning activities.

These included both theory and practical activities inside and outside the classroom. We welcomed visitors to remind us how to cross safely and we enjoyed learning off each other while working in our mentor groups.

 

School Partnership to Clean up the community 

 

The children in Year 3 joined forces with the Year 3 children from Madni and went out on a mission to clean up the community.

They worked very hard clearing up rubbish and gathering leaves from a local area in Savile Town. It was a great and very rewarding experience by the children and a wonderful opportunity to link with another local school. We will look forward to more projects together in the future.

 

All saints in cumbria 

 

Earlier in the week the children at Paradise were learning about the floods that affected the people of Cumbria and after some of the parents from PPS had been there to help with the clean up operation. 
 
The children felt inspired to help and were concerned that children and families, just like them, would be struggling to live in their own homes due to the devastation caused by the flooding. 
 
So on Thursday 17th December a group of children undertook a very enjoyable and lively 4 hour trip to All Saints CE Primary School in Cockermouth. They met with the children and teachers, performed some nasheeds in a special assembly and delivered boxes of doughnuts as a special end of term treat. 
Aishah delivered a speech explaining to the children the meaning of the nasheeds and that the message given is that we are all one big family and should love one another no matter what happens. Ahmad led the children in the nasheeds and the staff and children of All Saints were very impressed. 
 
Meanwhile back in Dewsbury, the other children held a milkshake and nasheed afternoon where they each brought in a charitable donation in order to help the flood effected families in Cumbria. 
 
"Thank you so much to you and your lovely children for travelling to see us. We are looking forward to staying in touch with you and definitely will be looking into accessing some funding so we can visit you and your school! Heartfelt thanks to all your children." All Saints 
 
Both schools are excited about working together in the future.
 

 

Paula Sherriff MP

On 23rd October we welcomed our local newly elected MP to school. This was an excellent extension to our Election Day earlier in the year which was a very important day for Paula.

Paula met with all of the children and gave them an insight into what her job entails and how she looks after our community.

She expressed her enjoyment at visiting our school and hopes to return again very soon.

West Yorkshire Police Visit 

Officers from West Yorkshire Police, including Community Liaison Officers and Prevent Coordinators spent the day educating the children about the merits of being a police officer and the perils of being on the wrong side of the law. This was a great opportunity to discuss safety with our children both on and off line.

 

 

School Pets 

In July we welcomed Oreo and Cream to our school. They have provided the children with an opportunity to love, respect and care for other living creatures and have embraced the responsibility of looking after their daily needs with great enthusiasm.

Election Day 

 

On May 7th, National Election Day, the children of Paradise all took part in the experience just like all the politians throughout the country!

Each class were allocated one of the main political party's, learnt all about them and developed their own manifesto, elected their own leaders and made election speeches for the whole school. The whole week the school building was transformed with bill boards and posters advertising the various parties.

Teachers and children both enjoyed this whole experience and Year 4 reigned victorious!

Visit to Barnfield Residential Home 

 

The children from Year 5 paid a visit to the residents in Barnfield one morning in March. They brought buns and snacks are prepared some musical performances for the the ladies and gentlemen there. Then they stayed and chatted a while about each others lives and different things they had in common. The children and staff loved the visit and made some friends there. After the visit one resident contacted the school to say how much they had enjoyed meeting the children and came and took an assembly for the whole school. We hope to visit again soon.
