Parents, teachers, government, inspectors and children all agree that school is about far more than learning the curriculum. Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development is the term used to embrace this broader dimension. It ranges from teaching in RE and citizenship through to sex and relationship education and a wide range of extra-curricular and out-of-school activities. Importantly these vital dimensions of life and growth should be present across the entire curriculum
SMSC Online is a support website for the integration of spiritual, moral, social and cultural values across all aspects of school life.
We will inform, encourage and inspire you in your teaching - by providing ideas, advice and access to a wealth of resources.
Our online directory extends beyond SMSC to include providers of resources that teachers sometimes find it hard to find, for example - venues for school outings, music teachers, sports coaches etc.
If you have any ideas and lesson plans to share, please let us know.
