There is strong evidence that promoting SMSC can contribute to raising academic standards and improving children’s life chances (Banerjee 2013).

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural provision has the potential to raise aspirations. It can also develop empathy, deepen spirituality, connect young people with their communities and develop their core values. It creates opportunities for pupils to learn and practise human virtues and values such as compassion, hope, faith and forgiveness.

Through high quality SMSC education we have the opportunity to nurture reflective wisdom that will enable our children to make wise and appropriate choices that will prepare them for life in modern Britain.
