Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

What is SMSC?

A school has a duty not just to the the academic progress of the students, but also to develop and nurture each student as an individual. SMSC refers to the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of a child and at the Stonehenge school we do this by ensuring that all aspects of school life reflect the ideology that the child as a whole counts.

How is it delivered?

SMSC is a feature of every aspect of school life at the Stonehenge School. What this means in real terms is that:

• SMSC is promoted through a planned tutor programme which includes PSHE, Citizenship and Weekly themes.

British Values

As part of the SMSC programme at the Stonehenge School, we also aim to promote British Values.

 The Government has set the definition of these British Values as being:

• democracy

• the rule of law

• individual liberty

• mutual respect

• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs 

Beyond this the Stonehenge school is committed to serving its community and recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  


“Students behave well in lessons and around the school, showing a sensible concern for one another”.

[Ofsted 2008]
