Introduction to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.  At Kentmere Academy, SMSC is at the heart of everything we do and say. We teach SMSC through assemblies, celebrations, Sunshine Days and PSHE lessons, but opportunities to grow as well rounded students are seized by our teachers at every possible moment. We explore spirituality through our PSHE and RE curriculum, but also learn to value the beliefs of others through debates and our Equality and Diversity Assemblies. We develop morality through our British Values units, but also through our behaviour policy as children learn right from wrong. Children learn about social values through our enrichment, sunshine days and extra curricular activities. Cultural awareness is developed through our wide range of events and celebrations throughout the year, including Chinese New Year, Harvest, Eid, Autism Awareness Day and many more. Every part of every day is an opportunity to develop skills in SMSC.
