Spiritual Curriculum

All National Curriculum subjects offer opportunities to promote children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC) in some way. In practice, this means delivering each element through the curriculum and between lessons rather than timetabled SMSC lessons.

 

Other aspects of school life such as extra-curricular activities, assemblies and school trips also provide opportunities for SMSC.
