SMSC at NOA
What is Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education?
Schools are required to provide for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of their students, this includes actively promoting fundamental British values.
SMSC is concerned with "the search for meaning and purpose in life and for values by which to live". This can be seen in a variety of contexts across North Oxfordshire Academy. For example; during tutor time, extended Tutor theme mornings, lessons within the curriculum and Enrichment clubs and activities.
