Summary of Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural Experiences at Caistor Yarborough Academy
The students experience and explore SMSC issues (Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural) in a variety of ways throughout the Academy day and in extra-curricular time. Some are planned whilst others arise from an activity.
Whole Academy initiatives such as support of charities and the ensuing fund raising, anti-bullying fortnight, Inter House competitions, Safer Internet Day all lead to exposure to thought provoking situations and debates. These all challenge our students’ perspective on life, they also help and encourage students to participate and use different life skills.
Themed assemblies, particularly from visiting speakers, can reach out to the students and help them to reflect on consequences of behavior, how this can affect them and others.
PSHE (Personal, Social, and Health Education) actively studies topics such as Democracy, The Media, Legal Systems, Parliament, Multicultural GB, Dictatorships in the World, Electoral systems, Politics.
