SMSC Policy

Policy for Visiting Speakers

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each school provides for its pupils. For maintained schools (except special schools established in a hospital) this includes the national curriculum (which includes work-related learning), religious education (RE), collective worship, sex education, in the case of those being provided with secondary education, and careers education. Section 78 of the Education Act 2002 requires the school curriculum to be balanced and broadly based and:


  • to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life; and
  • to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.
