Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural Education (SMSC) including British Values.
What is the vision of SMSC at Lee Chapel?
In Lee chapel we aim to develop knowledge, skills and attributes which will keep children healthy, safe and importantly prepare them for life and work in the modern world. As well as the timetabled lessons (topic), the whole school takes part in anti-bullying events, multicultural week and celebration of faith week. We also have a school parliament who raises issues and make important decisions for the how to improve the school.
Teaching SMSC encompasses cultural identities, religious beliefs, exploring different faiths as well as British Values. Our high expectations in our books are exactly the same as the high expectations in every other lesson.
- British values will be recorded termly and SMSC can be found in numerous lessons in our rich and balanced curriculum.
- Termly moral assemblies are delivered to the children.
The progress made by our children is very clear. From KS1 to KS2 the children are able to articulate the British Values and what they meant to them. Furthermore, the children are ready for the wider world after learning and embracing important life skills. For instance, how to behave morally in certain situations.
