Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultual (SMSC) education is an important part of life at Harris Garrard Academy.

  • Spiritual: explore beliefs and experience; respect values; discover oneself and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.
  • Moral: recognise right and wrong; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.
  • Social; use social skills in different contexts; work well with others; resolve conflicts; understand how communities work.
  • Cultural: appreciate cultural influences; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

How we teach SMSC

At Harris Garrard Academy we deliver our SMSC education and Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) content in a variety of ways. The following table shows how we use our weekly tutor programme to teach key themes. D.E.A.R stands for 'Drop Everything and Read'. At the start of the school day, every student and member of staff will stop what they are doing and read for 20 minutes.
