What is SMSC?

Helping schools promote their S.M.S.C. development.

 

'Every school in UK must promote SMSC, which is particularly important to Ofsted.  The SMSC Quality Mark for Primary and Secondary school aims to help you recognise and review the development of SMSC.'

 

SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  All schools in England and Wales must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.

Spiritual

Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Moral

Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.

Social

Use a range of social skills; participate in the local community; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.

Cultural

Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

 

How will Ofsted grade it?

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is now referenced throughout Ofsted's School Inspection Handbook.

An 'outstanding' school will have a 'thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'.

An 'inadequate' school will have 'serious weaknesses in the overall promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'.

 

On a tight budget this Spring?

 

Can't afford the coach to visit a Temple, Mandir or Gurudwara?

 

BHS can bring it to you instead!

 

Too much risk assessment, pupil letters and other logistics to deal with?

 

Why not have our workshops at your school and cut your costs by up to 60%, save headaches, letter writing and reduce the risks!

"The prime purpose in this life is to help others.  If we can't help them, at least don't hurt them..."
