Welcome toBelmont Community Primary SchoolAchieving excellence, putting children first


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.


We consciously facilitate opportunities in these four areas of learning in the following ways:


Spiritual Development

The opportunity to explore beliefs, experience and faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity and reflect on experiences.
