SMSC and British Values
What does SMSC education include?
- Spiritual: The opportunity to explore beliefs, experience and faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity and reflect on experiences.
- Moral: The opportunity to learn what is right and wrong and respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues and offer reasoned views.
- Social: The opportunity to use a range of social skills to participate in the local community and beyond; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict.
- Cultural: The opportunity to explore and appreciate cultural influences; participate in cultural opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.
Since 2014, all schools have been required to promote ‘fundamental British values'. This is built into our SMSC curriculum. The fundamental British Values are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- tolerance and respect.
