SMSC is at the heart of everything we do at Herne Juniors; it encompasses personal development across the whole curriculum.
As a school, we have an annual SMSC week where we take the opportunity to focus solely on the Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural aspects of learning. This ties together everything we do on a day to day basis. During this week, children are given the opportunity to experience new and exciting activities outside of the normal curriculum whilst continuing to explore our school values, vision and mission statement. Our pupils are able to choose the activity they would like to do from a given range of options.
Previous activities have included:
To name but a few.
In addition, during this week, children study an artist from a different culture, this year we studied the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. At the end of the week, we have a celebration as a school through a gallery in year groups and a celebration video. Parents and carers have previously been able to view their wonderful work.
