Episode 9 of The Curriculum podcast follows up on last week’s introduction to SMSC and fundamental British values. This time we focus specifically on the ‘cultural’ part of SMSC. We look at how Ofsted refers to it, what it means for schools and how school leaders and teachers can build the cultural aspects of SMSC into their curriculum.
This is an episode full of tangible ideas and takeaways for schools. If you’ve been wondering how to make cultural activities part of your everyday teaching, you should find something here. It’s about planning, context and giving children opportunity to experience and celebrate as much cultural activity as possible.
