Are we making the right connections? Embedding SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) successfully through the art craft and design curriculum
DateTue, 1st March, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationNorwich Castle, Norwich
‘A great, inspiring course with many new ideas to help me develop art and design at my school.’
The OFSTED profile of children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development (SMSC) has increased significantly this year. It is also part of the expectations for an increased focus on Britishness.
Art, Craft and Design makes a significant contribution to developing SMSC dimensions in learning and is one of the named subjects, where strong evidence can be seen.
On this day you will:
• get an overview of SMSC within the OFSTED context.
• look at how this can be met through the art craft and design curriculum
• see examples of projects and links to artist, craft persons and designers – historical and contemporary
• explore and use a relevant part of the Gallery to inspire you to create practical responses which underpin SMSC and which you can use back in the classroom.
‘The school’s curriculum provides highly positive and rich opportunities for high quality learning. It has a very positive impact on all pupils’ behaviour, academic achievement and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’.’
