Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural (SMSC)

Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural (SMSC) learning provides a wider framework for developing children’s understanding of the world they live in. We aim to embed SMSC throughout the school through actions such as:

  • Clear school values which are reflected on and celebrated in class and in assemblies
  • Using real-life contexts for learning such as visits, such as the local mosque
  • Visiting speakers such as the local vicar
  • Marking cultural and international events such as the Coronation, and Olympics
  • Allowing children to explore and use real objects and materials
  • Participation in themes such as Bikeability and anti-bullying in order to develop children’s understanding of important aspects and issues.
  • Learning about the differences between us, our families, abilities, beliefs, and celebrations.
  • School Council elected by their classes, who are involved in decision-making such as interviews.
  • School rules with rewards and sanctions to develop an understanding of right and wrong and taking responsibility.
  • A Year 6 residential trip that encourages working both collaboratively and independently.
  • Understanding the broader cultural context when learning French.
  • Participation in charity days such as food banks and Comic Relief.
