SMSC

Laura Liebmann, PSHE Leader and Year 1 Class Teacher

At Meadlands we are serious about promoting the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural aspects of learning.  We call this SMSC.  We believe this is so important, we dedicate our Wednesday assembly to discussing these issues.  Each week we will reflect on an important spiritual, moral, social or cultural message. Our school charity for the forthcoming academic year will be RUILS.  RUILS stands for Richmond Understands Independent Living and they are a local, user-led charity who's vision 'is for a society where all individuals (regardless of age, disability, impairment, health, capacity) are independent, valued, effective, equal and fully engaged members of society'.  We have been delighted to welcome RUILS to school on a variety of occasions in the past, they have supported our Summer Fair but also delivered some really thought-provoking sessions on disability awareness for the children.  If you would like to get involved with fundraising for this massively worthwhile cause please don't hesitate to speak to Mrs Colclough.

SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. 

Spiritual

Moral

Social

Cultural

Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.

 

Investigate moral issues; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance

Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

 

The SMSC dimension weaves through everything we do at Meadlands and we aim to be 'outstanding' in this area, with a 'thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'.  We are passionate about nurturing the whole child and educating them about their place within society today in the UK.  We believe that these two are inextricably linked and that both need to be taught and developed in order for every child to reach their potential.

 

SMSC links closely to numerous other aspects of the curriculum and school life, most notably, Behaviour, Sex and Relationships Education, PSHE, RE. 

 

This year we have had numerous successes in this area, most notably:
