Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
SMSC is at the heart of our curriculum as it is essential in developing the whole child and preparing them for Modern Britain. Here at MDJS we offer our pupils a lot of opportunities and experiences to further enrich their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. We create these opportunities through Cultural Capital and throughout the curriculum in a variety of ways.
