British Values


Yeadon Westfield Junior School promotes fundamental British Values. These values are best described under the following headings:

SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural. All school in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. Have a look at our wonderful website on the class pages and in the ‘Events in school’ page to identify how we develop SMSC  within our school, community and families and how we meet some of the required outcomes.
