Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education

Subject Leader: Mr Akers

At Ward Jackson Church of England Primary School, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. SMSC is embedded into every aspect of our life at Ward Jackson - particularly our daily worships, pedagogy and curriculum enrichment.  

SMSC runs throughout the school - from nursery to Y6. We use a range of methods to track, monitor and assess SMSC and Fundamental British Values; methods include tracking SMSC coverage through our curriculum floorbooks and gathering pupil voice.
