SMSC at Langley Park Primary Academy: Intended Impact and Evidence
How we encourage children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development:
At Langley Park Primary Academy we place pupils’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development at the heart of our work and it underpins all learning, in terms of attitude, social behaviour and personal development as well as academic attainment. Explicit opportunities to develop SMSC are found in our GoGivers (PSHE), Religious Education and Assembly programme, but it is also embedded in all subjects and a very important contribution is made by our school ethos and values, which promote positive relationships throughout the school.
We hope that our approach to SMSC will have a profound impact on the quality of our relationships, wellbeing and behaviour, as well as enabling our children to contribute positively to the communities to which they belong, in school and beyond. We endeavour to help our children become more confident, independent and responsible people as well as being motivated learners.
The promotion of British Values (Democracy, Rule of Law, Mutual Respect and Tolerance, and Individual Liberty) sits within this wider framework of SMSC development.

We use Go-Givers as a key resource to support teachers and children and in 2017-2018 we will look to become a Rights Respecting school with UNICEF – more details to follow.
