Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development


Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development is central to the ethos and curriculum at St Simon Stock Catholic School. Years 7-13 receive specialist Religious Education and Personal, Development and Wellbeing lessons as part of the compulsory curriculum. We have a House and vertical tutor system to celebrate achievements, support students and facilitate integration and understanding between year groups.


Citizenship and British Values are covered in daily form time sessions and our excellent enrichment and careers programme including regular ‘off-timetable’ days means that all years have opportunities to explore a variety of experiences. Our community links are excellent including supporting national and local charities and organisations. Students take an active role in and help to organise fundraising and other events including drama, Duke of Edinburgh scheme and music. We have an ‘Able and Ambitious’ programme that regularly promotes competitions, challenges and opportunities for all our students. We also have a yearly celebration of our students through our ‘Pride of Stocky’ awards; an opportunity for the school to come together to recognise our spiritual achievers, carers, friendships etc.
