Intent for SMSC


Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Futures


SMSC refers to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of a child. At Norman Pannell Primary School, we aim to prepare our children to take a full role in society as confident individuals and good citizens.

SMSC including British Values are at the heart of our curriculum and therefore are embedded across all subjects and threaded through our school ethos and daily life. With this whole school, inclusive approach, our vision is to help each individual child develop clear aspirations of who they want to be in our world.


Implementation of SMSC


SMSC is a feature of every aspect of school life at Norman Pannell and therefore, SMSC is promoted though:


  • Each area of the curriculum during planned lessons and activities.
  • Our whole school PSHE schemes 'Jigsaw' and 'P4C'.
  • Our weekly assemblies which focus on various themes throughout the year.
  • Guest visitors and off-timetable lessons/events that complement different curriculum areas.
  • Class trips and visits.
  • Extra-curricular clubs and activities.
  • Restorative Practice which complements and supports our behaviour policy.

Whole School SMSC Display


Each class has contributed to the display with a leaf or a flower. The children have written on the leaves and flowers something relating to SMSC that they have enjoyed taking part in this year, for example: School trips, Jigsaw Lessons etc.
