Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Development

Lady Hawkins’ School


Positive SMSC Development

For students to benefit fully from their time at Lady Hawkins’ School we ensure that they have the best teaching and pastoral care, alongside their personal development through a variety of rich experiences within and beyond the curriculum, in order that they are able to meet the expectations placed on them in work, conduct and attitude.

These aims can be realised with the help of positive SMSC Development.

The aim of the SMSC policy is to link and strengthen other policies so that the ideals of the School’s Mission Statement become a reality for its students.

The definitions and practices that follow are intended to clarify the ways that a pupil’s personal development and that of the School overall are enhanced by the linked qualities of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development.
