My SMSC work is at the core of this. Working towards creating better SMSC provision in schools and that is still very much part of what I am continuing to do. This is what my ebook, courses, and my flagship course is centred on.
As part of my long-term goals I want to bring SMSC out of schools and into family life. Learning does not stop at the classroom door, and young people who are the future of our nation and world deserve to have their learning continued and developed. I am also super conscious of dare I say “ignorance” that exists in our society about others who are different to us and the negative connotations that come from that. Simply how we respond to people who believe something different to us at times is shocking, people’s behaviour and how they express themselves is at times scary. There isn’t a simple solution but I have some very specific ideas about what I want to try and incorporate into family life so people are used to discussing topics ideas and beliefs with each other in a quest to learn more, gain tolerance knowledge and understanding. I want to bridge that gap that school may have missed out and continue the important learning process for young people.
Moving on I have plans to incorporate SMSC into a corporate sphere. We live in a “global village”, and we need to know about people in other cultures, races, religions, and every other demographic in between. I have an even bigger mission to speak directly to HR or CEO’s of organisations and work with them to develop a culture of SMSC. I am planning on what this SMSC framework will look like. There are no negatives only absolute benefits for everyone involved from both a macro and micro perspective. I want to work with Disney and Google – setting my sights high I know. Don’t just watch this space get in touch and continue your own SMSC journey with my support.
… you are making amazing progress and have such an important impact to make. SMSC provision is going to be recognised as more important than ever.
My SMSC Newsletter has been created and sent to over 350 subscribers since June 2020, and has been well very received. The next newsletter will be available in the Autumn term of 2021 and back copies from June 2020 until July 2021 are available for £12 for all copies. The content will be relevant, thought provoking and valuable to you as a practioner or leade in education.
Moving foward there will be two versions available -a free version and a paid for version both available on subscription.
If you would like to write a blog for the newsletter please get in touch. Here are some ideas for content that you may wish to choose from;
– What has worked well for you and your school.
– Exciting and interesting activities you have tried or want to try.
– Making SMSC part of your Performance Management targets.
– Preparation for Ofsted
– Working with other schools or agencies
I am passionate about creating meaningful SMSC provision for students and my monthly newsletter is part of the support I give. I welcome feedback on what you would like to see in future issues too.
