SMSC

SMSC Mission Statement.

Introduction

The Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of pupils has always been played a key role in the education of children at Plantation Primary. We recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve both inside and outside of school. Our approach to SMSC is embedded in our ethos as expressed through our aims and values (see below). We believe these are fundamental to a full and positive participation in life in modern Britain. Our broad and balanced curriculum provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures. We adopt a whole school approach to SMSC with all curriculum areas having a contribution to make to each child's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and opportunities for this are planned for in each area of the curriculum but are also acted upon whenever the opportunity arises.
