Achieving success for all


Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development at Aston

SMSC is essential for children and young people's individual development, as well as the development of society as a whole. 

Ofsted highlights the importance of SMSC as central to the development and growth of pupils as people and at the heart of what teachers would say education is all about. 

SMSC has been part of education since the 1944 education act and was around in earlier forms before that. It can sum up what a good school is all about - preparing children and young people to live full active lives as part of their community and into adulthood. Many school mission statements have a strong emphasis on SMSC. Aspirations to be a safe, happy school where children and young people can fulfil their potential and appreciate others, for instance, express some of the core elements of SMSC.
