SMSC

At Weston-under-Penyard Primary School we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC) plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop:

  • high standards of personal behaviour
  • a positive, caring attitude towards other people,
  • an understanding of their social and cultural traditions
  • an appreciation of the diversity and richness of the cultures
  • their own values and beliefs,
  • spiritual awareness,

SMSC is a dimension of the whole school experience which makes the curriculum relevant, stimulating, creative and fun. It enriches each subject and the ethos of Weston-under-Penyard Primary School and is an essential ingredient of school success.

A fantastic source of more information about our development of children's social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning is our twitter feed (@westonprimary) which can be found on the front page of this website.
