Social Moral Spiritual Cultural Education

At Matravers we aim to provide an inclusive, informative and interesting SMSC programme for our students. This year there is a change to the way we do this. Each week has a ‘Thought for the Week’ as a focus to guide students to consider a different aspect of the wider world, as such they will have a tutor session focusing on a particular aim which is differentiated to be appropriate to their year group. Now they also receive a tailored PSHE lesson designed by our SMSC lead.  This programme covers particular aspects of the PSHE curriculum recommended by the government. Each term this will have a different focus. Students also have the chance to listen to outside speakers and experts, as well as watch theatre and workshop performances to further enhance their SMSC experience.

As part of the SMSC provision we will cover topics relating to puberty and sexual education –  we view this aspect to education imperative to a child’s development into adulthood, if you have strong objection to your child receiving the sexual education content then please contact their Progress Leader to discuss this.
