SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development)

by Michael Ford last modified 25 Oct, 2017 10:55 AM
"One of the tasks of a Church school is about forming people who, however academically and technically skilful, are not reduced to embarrassment by the great questions of life and death, meaning and truth."- Lord Runcie, former Archbishop of Canterbury

SMSC Header

For many adults who come into education as a career, SMSC is at the heart of their purpose.

It is core to children and young people's individual development, and consequently the development of society as a whole. It is about enabling children and young people to develop holistically, to explore their sense of self, their relationships and values, their understanding of the world and their place in it and their perceptions of the ‘beyond’. The development of SMSC within our school system enables them both to gain the most from their childhood and prepare them to live full adult lives within their communities.

The Board of Education can support school and parish work in this area in range of ways, for example enabling you to develop continuity and progression in your school provision, developing shared definitions across your school or group of schools and academies, exploring teaching and learning strategies, unravelling Ofsted and SIAMS expectations and how to meet and evidence them. We can facilitate your work in one area or in all four areas, including current areas of development such as ‘promoting British values’, ‘preparing children for life in modern Britain’.

NEW: Springs Dance Company's 'Get Fit, Go Green' project offers energetic, action packed dance workshops that help children think about climate change and improve their fitness. The work links closely to the Christian faith, highlighting a sense of stewardship for the planet and for creation, all as part of Jesus' call to love our neighbour.
