What is SMSC?
SMSC stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education.

At Hester’s Way Primary School we include aspects of SMSC in our assemblies, ethos and class teaching. We include these important values for life in our Religious Education curriculum, Citizenship and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and theme work.
These definitions show the what the words in SMSC stand for.

Spiritual
Explore beliefs and experience; respect values; discover oneself and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Moral
Recognise right and wrong; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.

Social
Use social skills in different contexts; work well with others; resolve conflicts; understand how communities work.

Cultural
Appreciate cultural influences; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.
