Parents' Induction Evening

Note to new parents: If your child is arriving in August 2017, there will be parents' induction evening on Wednesday 5 July.  Details to follow.


At Ashby School, we place great emphasis on the holistic development of our students.

Our aim is to empower all students and to enable them to develop a set of personal values that will prepare them for life as citizens in modern day Britain. As such, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) enrichment of our students is at the heart of the school’s ethos.

We adopt a whole school approach to the SMSC development of our students, covering all curriculum areas. Dedicated subjects including GCSE Citizenship, GCSE Religious Education and a core subject that includes Citizenship, Careers and Religious Education (CCRE)  address key themes that relate to SMSC. CCRE is a new subject which is studied by all students at Key Stage 4, highlighting the school's commitment to SMSC.

Through the House System and assembly programme, students are educated about the world around them and asked to reflect on a range of real-world issues. Student Voice, trips and visits and the vast extra-curricular programme offered by the school all plays a key role in the SMSC development of our students.

In the Ashby School community, students are encouraged to show open mindedness, self-awareness and  respect for all. These three values are promoted in all aspects of school life and again encourage the SMSC development of our students. As a school, we also have a variety of links with the local, national and international community.

We recognise that the personal development of students, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant role in their ability to learn and achieve. Our full policy sets out the school's vision and practice in relation to SMSC development.
