SMSC and Preparation for Life in Modern Britain

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development at Harlington School

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum over a 3 year period at Key Stage 3 and a broad range of subjects at Key Stages 4 and 5. We believe that all students should have access to the full range of subjects and that it is essential to promote the arts and sports subjects alongside other subjects including literacy and numeracy based subjects. Students’ personal and social development is also supported through our PSCHEE and SRE programmes which run through all year groups.  Enrichment activities for all year groups enhance curriculum provision further.

Preparation for life in Modern Britain

It is our duty as an educational establishment is not only to support students in gaining the skills required to pass examinations, but also to develop them into well-rounded students who are have the skills and adaptability to continue with further study and then into the world of work. We believe that it is our duty to help our students develop their own beliefs based on making sound moral judgements, based on exposure to different viewpoints, religions and cultures to prepare them for life in a modern Britain. This is referred to as students’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC).
