At Castledon School we recognise the importance of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education which is pivotal for personal development of students.
In Key Stages 1 - 3 students access SMSC through RSHE lessons, topics lessons and half-termly drop down days for religious education.
In Key Stages 4 and 5 students have one PSHE lesson each week to cover religious education, democracy, rule of law and diversity - giving our young people an insight into what it means to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain. Additionally, in Key Stage 4, students access creative topics lessons which include learning about history.
To complement this timetabled provision, SMSC runs throughout the curriculum with staff providing opportunities to explore diversity through art, music and recognition of significant religious festivals.
We place a particular emphasis on providing a variety of SMSC learning opportunities for our students to broaden their experiences and support personal development. We embrace community learning as we feel it gives our students an enriched education beyond the classroom. This includes visits to various places of worship, museums, historical sites and our older students have visited The Houses of Parliament.
