SMSC is at the heart of our teaching and learning at Dishforth Airfield Primary. The attached booklet highlights our wide-ranging curriculum-based and extra-curricular provision which helps to develop our pupils as spiritual, moral, social and cultural learners. Global Dimension is embedded in the work of the school and encapsulated within this are the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty , mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
What is Spiritual Moral Social & Cultural Education?
SMSC is about developing the whole person. As our pupils move through the school, we are committed to developing not only their academic standards and levels of achievement, but also their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness. We aim to provide opportunities for our children to form their own identity; sense of place and purpose, giving them the confidence to question and discover who they are in the world and face the exciting challenges that lie ahead. A Christian ethos underpins our values and mission alongside a broad and balanced religious education curriculum encompassing Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Chinese New Year and Humanism.
