What is SMSC?
The pupils' Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development is not a stand-alone curriculum element, but rather a thread running through every aspect of learning. It is a consistently framed, clearly defined ethos which underpins our core vision for every individual. In all that we do, we aim to keep the child 'visible' and ensure that we - alongside parents and the community - are shaping the 'whole child'.
