SMSC is a dimension of the whole school experience which makes the curriculum relevant, stimulating, creative and fun. It enriches each subject, embodies the ethos of Rosebery School and is an essential ingredient of school success.
At Rosebery School we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC) plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. SMSC is essential for children and young people’s individual development, as well as the development of society as a whole.
Ofsted highlights the importance of SMSC as central to the development and growth of pupils as people and at the heart of what teachers would say education is all about. SMSC has been part of education since the 1944 education act and was around in earlier forms before that. It can sum up what a good school is all about – preparing children and young people to live full active lives as part of their community and into adulthood.
