Welcome toBelmont Community Primary SchoolAchieving excellence, putting children first


At Belmont, we use PSHE/RSE and SMSC to teach children about citizenship; health and well-being; physical activity; mental and emotional health; drug education and relationships as well as actively promoting fundamental British Values and the Protected Characteristics. The teaching of PSHE and SMSC has a vital role in helping to prepare for their futures, ensuring that every child is given every chance to succeed.


PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education and its objectives run throughout our curriculum and are taught discretely when appropriate to support children with key skills or at specific times eg Anti-Bullying Week/Safer Internet Week/Children's Mental Health Week.


RSE stands for Relationships and Sex Education and is part of a lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. RSE is centred on personal safety, caring for others and building strong relationships. This is coupled with teaching children about the human body and its changes during puberty, including information about reproduction.


SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. As part of work in this area, it meets Article 2 for the Rights of the Child where they apply to every child without discrimination. 


These are all important areas of learning as they help give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. They aim to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
