Bexley’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) resource pack
18 Feb
Dear Colleagues, Please find attached a flyer for Bexley’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) resource pack. This is a helpful guide that will inspire, stimulate and promote the development of spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of all learners’ development. The materials are not exhaustive and will continue to evolve in response to Department of Education and Ofsted guidance and as new resources are published. As the title suggests, SMSC is not about adopting a particular stance or about providing an additional ‘input’ by practitioners in schools and educational settings, but rather about recognising that the learners’ journey will be influenced by a spectrum of changing factors external to schools and educational settings. These materials, developed in educational settings and schools, are intended to promote the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those with a different faith and belief. In addition, it includes legislative and practical guidance for schools, parents and carers on the Prevent Duty; thus ensuring the safety and well-being of children and young people. Through the purchase of this document, you will obtain a password that gives you full access to a range of on-line resources. We look forward to receiving feedback from you on the materials, as you continue to use and adapt them with your learners. This will be invaluable for us in updating their currency and usefulness in the classroom and wider community. Kind Regards Meena Wood Senior Education Adviser
