What is SMSC?
SMSC stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.
All schools in England are required to show how well their pupils develop in SMSC and, at Weddington Primary school, we work hard to ensure that SMSC development runs through the heart of everything we do. The following describes the wealth of experiences offered to our pupils linked to each of these aspects:
Exploring beliefs and experiences; respecting faiths, feelings and values; enjoying learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; using imagination and creativity and learning about reflection.
Recognising right and wrong; respecting the law; understanding consequences; investigating moral and ethical issues and offering reasoned views.
Using a range of social skills; participating in the local community; appreciating diverse viewpoints; participating, volunteering and cooperating; resolving conflict and engaging with the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.
Appreciating cultural influences; appreciating the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participating in culture opportunities and understanding, accepting, respecting and celebrating diversity.
