Ofsted and SMSC

Helping schools promote SMSC


Every school in UK must promote SMSC, which is particularly important to Ofsted.  The SMSC Quality Mark for Primary and Secondary school aims to help schools recognise and review the development of SMSC.


What is SMSC?

SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.


Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.


Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.


Use a range of social skills; participate in the local community; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the 'British values' of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.


Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

How will Ofsted grade it?

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is now referenced throughout Ofsted's School Inspection Handbook.

An 'outstanding' school will have a 'thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'.

An 'inadequate' school will have 'serious weaknesses in the overall promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'.



PHSE and Multiculturalism

The Department for Education acknowledges the importance for children to be made aware of the various aspects of different cultures and religions. Therefore we offer these workshops to facilitate religious integration and promote social cohesion. Presentations are cross-curriculum and relevant to all elements of Personal, Health, Social Citizenship Education. Each module is structured to highlight multiculturism by identifiying pupils from different ethnic backgrounds.  


The PSHE Curriculum aims to:

Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society

Prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life   


Please Note: All workshops are available throughout the year.  Custom designed modules can be arranged as per your requirements.                          


On a tight budget?  

Can't afford to visit a Temple or Gurudwara?  

Do you have the coach hire, parent letters, risk assessments, and tricky logistics to deal with???


Why not have us come to your school and cut costs by up to 70% and say Goodbye to all the headaches, letter writing and reduce those risks!" 

WESAK Festival

is a very popular celebration in the Winter term.
