What is SMSC?
SMSC stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural. Take a look at the many ways in which we develop SMSC in our children at Burlish Park Primary.
There are many opportunities for pupils to develop their social, moral, spiritual and cultural skills in learning outside the classroom activities. (LOTC) These experiences help to build confidence, self-belief that they will make progress, engages the pupils in learning, provides memorable learning experiences and applies learning in a real life context.
There are planned visits to local shops, forests, other local schools, nature reserves, museums and places of worship, to name a few, all of which help to develop the all-round child.
In year 6, the pupils have the opportunity to further develop their relationship and social skills during a residential visit to Malvern Outdoor Elements. This follows on from Outdoor and Adventurous Activities lessons which pupils participate in from Reception through to year 6 where team work, communication and other social skills are developed.
