Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development within Kingsmeadow is promoted through a variety of different ways, both in school and within the wider community.
Here at Kingsmeadow we are enthusiastic about education not simply as a means of conveying knowledge to our students, but also as a vehicle by which we can instil values and in turn improve the quality of life for each one of them. Effective SMSC development within our school has the potential to be paramount to the success of our students, by providing them with a knowledge of of the wider world and highlighting the opportunities which are available if they achieve a sound educational base. Our SMSC provision provides our students with the resources and impetus to develop their skills and helps them form a positive attitude towards learning, which will equip them not only in their current education, but also in their post-school life.
During our Learning for Life (L4L) days our students should are given the opportunity to experience the wider world through a varied and relative programme of learning, which seeks to promote SMSC as something which can inspire and influence them in a positive way. L4L is an excellent way to ensure that students learn about things which will directly affect them as they progress through their lives, making sure that alongside a first class education and formidable qualifications, they are equipped with an invaluable set of life skills.
During L4L days students learn about a variety of things, such as:
- Citizenship, including politics, government and the role of law
- Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
- Sex and Relationships Education (SRE)
- Financial Education
- A variety of SMSC focused activities aimed at developing critical thought and deepening understanding.
