SMSC at St. Thomas C.E.School
SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural. We recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
At St. Thomas School we aim to develop SMSC in an on-going way through all areas of the new curriculum. This is a whole school issue and SMSC should be evident not only within lessons but within all aspects of school life.
We therefore aim to deliver an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.
All adults at St. Thomas School will model and promote expected behaviour, treating all people as unique and valuable individuals and showing respect for pupils and their families.
