SMSC and the School Council at Prince Rock Primary School


At the start of each term, your child might come home talking about how they’ve been ‘doing SMSC’ at school. But what actually is it and what are they learning about? SMSC is an acronym for: Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural. Children learn how to get along with each other and how to become, resilient, independent and happy learners. At Prince Rock, we often do this through stories, Drama, games and circle times. We update our whole school displays every term to show which theme we have been exploring. Please feel free to have a look at them on the Middle Floor corridor next to the hall.


SMSC is all around us and embodies everything that we do at school. We celebrate it in assemblies and use it continually in our BLP (Building Learning Power) approach. It’s looking like it’s going to be a busy Autumn term:



  • Themes for exploration in class and assemblies = New Beginnings and Rules.
  • Children’s University launch assembly
  • New school council members chosen.


  • Life Education Centre caravan with Andrew Hartley will visit.
  • Teachers meeting across the Academy to discuss SMSC.



  • Friendship Week 2018 – ‘Choose Respect’
  • Parliament Week 2018.


  • Mindfulness focus across the school.


Red Nose Day 2017


This term we will be selling red noses in school for £1.00 so please support our fundraising by buying your nose at school. The school councillors will be selling them at playtimes and lunchtimes very soon!


Please help us to support this worthwhile cause.

Oliver Colvile MP

Recently we were lucky enough to be visited by Oliver Colvile MP.  He enjoyed a tour of our school and then answered some questions which all of the children had helped to think of.  Amongst other things he told us that a good leader should be inspirational, a good listener and able to work well with others.  He also said his favourite childhood books were the Jungle Book and Swallows and Amazons.  He said he thought the children of Prince Rock were extremely polite and he really enjoyed his visit to our school.
