Silver Award for National SMSC Quality Mark
We are proud to announce that Crosfields School has been awarded the Silver award for the National SMSC Quality Mark. This award is a huge achievement for the school, as it celebrates our work in developing Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural values across both our staff and pupils.
At Crosfields, our inclusive and caring approach gives pupils the space to flourish in their studies and beyond, with our strong subject specialist teaching, extra-curricular activities and state-of-the-art facilities. This includes our 25-metre pool, artificial turf pitches and award-winning Senior School building. We strive to empower each individual, delivering a broad education that enables both personal growth and academic excellence. This was commented on in our SMSC Quality Mark report, with Verifier Russell Stanley observing that we are “deeply committed to enriching [our] students’ broader development, as well as serving their academic needs.”
We are extremely proud that the report also recognised the strength of the Crosfields community, noting the positive interactions between pupils, teachers and staff. As a family-feel school, where friendships stretch beyond year groups, we hold the importance of community at our core. We are delighted that the National SMSC Quality Mark report acknowledged the friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Crosfields, describing it as “a testimony to the emphasis that you and your staff place upon SMSC across school.”
Parents are an integral part of the Crosfields community, and our engagement with parents, carers and guardians was commended in the report. By establishing effective two-way communication with parents, we are able to welcome them into the Crosfields family, and can be responsive to their views and opinions.
Another strength of Crosfields School highlighted in the report was our wide and varied range of extra-curricular opportunities. From Nursery to Year 11, our pupils are given the chance to take part in age-appropriate and engaging activities that develop both their skills and their character outside of academic provision. Whether they are budding athletes, keen musicians, talented performers or even aspiring chess masters, there is something for every child at Crosfields. The vast array of extra-curricular activities available at our school allows each student to follow their own interests and passions, developing their individuality and preparing them for life beyond Crosfields.
Our Silver Award is a testament to the value Crosfields places in Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. The report itself emphasised this, remarking that both Governors and Senior Leaders are very clear on how important SMSC is in maintaining and developing Crosfields as a school.
