Spiritual, Moral and Cultural Development


Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development is central to our curriculum. At Jamiatul Ummah, we pride ourselves in incorporating opportunities for our pupils to develop their understanding of their own selves and also the pluralistic world they are in.



Our pupils explore their own beliefs and lived experiences and those of others. They respect faiths, feelings and values, enjoy learning about themselves, others and the surrounding world. Our pupils learn to be imaginative and creative, sharing their ideas and viewpoints with others.


Our pupils are taught to recognise right and wrong, to respect the law, to understand consequences and to investigate moral and ethical issues. They are given opportunity to share well-informed and reasoned viewpoints.


Our pupils use a range of social skills, participate in the local community, appreciate diverse viewpoints, volunteer and cooperate with others in and out of school, resolve conflict, engage with the British values of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance.


Our pupils understand and appreciate cultural influences. They appreciate the role of the English parliamentary system, participate in culture opportunities, understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.

Our curriculum documents and schemes of works reference unique points where SMSC is explored. For details of this, please see relevant documents.
