Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

Spritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development

In all lessons Teachers specifically aim to ensure the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of students; this is monitored regularly through lesson observations. We run a series of Enrichment Days to ensure that there are opportunities to further develop SMSC by providing enriching activities that will extend students' learning beyond the classroom.

In addition to this we have a programme of 'Thought for the Week' which is developed from the Assembly Theme each week during registration times. Assembly Themes and 'Thought for the Week' for the current school term are detailed below. 

'Thought for the Week'

The aim of 'Thought for the Week' is to encourage students to reflect on their values, beliefs and attitudes. By giving students time to consider the assembly theme throughout the week we hope our students will develop their emotional literacy and be capable of talking about their thoughts and feelings.

Below please find Assembly Theme and Thought for the Week for the last week of the Spring Term 2020. From the start of the Summer Term, due to restrictions caused by CV-19 there will be no assemblies for the foreseeable future.
