Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development

Our commitment to spiritual, moral and cultural education is embodied in the aims and vision for the school, and underlined by the dictum ‘High achievement for all is our shared responsibility’.

We promote student’s spiritual, moral social and cultural development in a variety of ways. Explicit teaching occurs through:

  • the subject curriculum including religious education
  • excellent pastoral support and guidance systems
  • carefully planned assemblies and form time activities
  • our programme for personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE),
  • our careers and work experience programme.

Through this all students are aware of different forms of bullying, including cyber-bullying and prejudice-based bullying (including transphobic, homophobic, sexist, racist and disability based). 

In 2015 SMSC was affirmed as an area of excellent practice by a Challenge Partners quality assurance review.
