PSHE/SMSC

Forest Hall School recognises that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) element of students’ education is crucial to their development as an individual, allowing them to take their rightful place in their community as a local, national and global citizen. SMSC is about the values students are encouraged to hold, their attitude towards learning, knowledge and society. SMSC is fundamental in preparing young people for society and at Forest Hall School students are helped to develop positive attitudes and beliefs by being given opportunities to:

  • Develop spiritual values and reasoned personal and moral values.
  • Consider the pluralistic nature of society; developing their understanding and respect for those with different religions, beliefs and ways of life.
  • Value everyone equally.
  • Create and develop personal relationships, based on trust, self-esteem and mutual respect.
  • Become active, responsible citizens in a democratic society.
  • Develop an appreciation of human achievements and aspirations.
  • Develop an understanding of the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups, nations and the environment.

Through SMSC we seek to develop attitudes and values that will enable students to become responsible and caring members of society. We give students the opportunity for spiritual reflection and encourage them to explore the fundamental questions of life including their own personal existence, journey and purpose. We provide students with a curriculum that will enable them to develop a knowledge and understanding of diverse cultures, particularly those within their own society. We seek to foster an attitude of tolerance and value towards those from a culture and background different from their own. Students are encouraged to develop an understanding of the world, society and the community and accept responsibility as a citizen as well as the capacity to tackle moral and spiritual dilemmas and to try to reach independent judgements, which reflect universal human principles. Through perception and sensitivity, tolerance and respect for others as individuals and in groups we would also expect students to develop questioning, enquiring minds and learn how to express their ideas appropriately.

Thought of the Week:

Each week staff share the Thought of the Week which is connected to the theme of the week. This helps both students and staff focus and consider local and wider issues. Discussion during registration time helps the students develop their opinions. Please see the below downloadable Thoughts of the Week.
