Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of pupils at Delta Academies, including British Values

The Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils has always been at the heart of the education offered in Delta Academies.  Our school approach to SMSC is embedded in the Delta ethos of mutual respect, partnership working and collaboration; an approach that we believe is fundamental to a full and positive participation in life in modern Britain.   

Academy ethos statement:

Our Vision is to create a safe, caring and stimulating environment for all pupils on the first step of their school journey. 

Our core values are that independence, positive relationships, engagement and enjoyment are at the heart of all we do.
