Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural Education (SMSC)

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education is woven into the very fabric of Markington School, through our curriculum, our relationships, and the opportunities we provide, informing the:

•the kind of people we aspire to be

•the kind of world we aspire to create

Some aspects of SMSC are explicit in our curriculum (such as teaching about how to keep healthy minds and bodies), whilst other elements are less tangible, but are a key element of Markington School's ethos and expectations.  We encourage everyone to aspire to be the best that they can, recognising children's talents and interests, whether academic or non-academic.   

Our school behaviour policy is based on the principle of 'Ready, Respectful, Safe' providing the right environment for everyone to access their learning, and our Learning Powers help children to develop the language, resilence, and attitude to succeed, preparing them for life in modern Britain.

This is explained further below:

Spiritual education involves the growth of children's sense of self, their unique potential, their strengths and areas for development, and their will to achieve.        Shown by:

Social education involves the growth of children's ability to thrive in, and contribute to, the wider world.  It is concerned with the development of interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with a wide variety of differnt people.

Cultural education is concerned with the value and richness of cultural diversity here and in the wider world, and how this influences individuals and society.

Below is an example of the events children may be exposed to in their time at Markington School.  Naturally, these events may be adapted in response to current events (e.g. Jubilee) and the curriculum focus.
