Spiritual, moral, social, vocational and cultural (SMSVC) is an outstanding feature of life here at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary school.

Our pupils are provided with a wealth of opportunities and experiences to develop spiritually through inspiring child led assemblies, collective worship, use of high quality prayer resources and thought provoking lessons. From a moral perspective, the children are encouraged to approach problems and decisions focused on 'What would Jesus do?' Our pupils socialise with others from different socioeconomic, ethnic and other religious groups and have respect for all people as children of God. Students' vocational development is catered for by dedicated Vocations weeks as a time to reflect on our call to serve others; this encompasses all that we do here at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary school. Children's cultural development is enhanced by our broad and balanced curriculum in which we study national and international topics; engaging with the cultures of people who live there.

SMSVC is a central aspect for our school as 'we follow in the footsteps of Jesus to make the heart, mind and spirit soar'.
