Develop and Demonstrate Outstanding SMSC 2014 - London

Wednesday 7 May 2014
Practical and proven tools to effectively embed, evaluate and evidence spiritual, moral, social and cultural education across your school

Event summary - why is this conference relevant?

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural pupil development plays a crucial role at inspection. If a school is rated inadequate for SMSC, the overall grade received cannot be higher than inadequate. It has therefore never been more vital that SMSC is successfully embedded across your whole school.

Are you confident that Ofsted will judge your pupils’ SMSC development to be Outstanding?
