Whilst there is no statutory national curriculum for SMSC, all pupils must study it – and be taught about British Values under the Education Act (2002). Non-statutory guidance documents speak of the importance of studying SMSC as; “It is expected that pupils should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. We have taken the Ofsted guidance for SMSC and, having applied our experiences and understanding of learning and progression, provided you with a guide that will help structure learning effectively.
Written by current practitioners, for current practitioners, this progression guide is aligned with the latest guidance tosupport the curriculum development and implementation under the new Ofsted Framework.
It gives you clear examples of what each skill looks like for every year group, with useful examples of vocabulary.
This guide also includes suggested games/activities for SMSC for each year group and some tips for introducing SMSC at the beginning of each lesson.
