At Rosebank we offer our children a varied and extensive SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) education. We strive to create a learning environment which promotes respect, diversity and self-reflection and equips our pupils with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they will need to succeed in their future lives.
We use the ‘No Outsiders in Our School’ scheme to support the teaching of and fuel the discussion around SMSC topics, including promoting diversity, anti-bullying and taking pride in ourselves. This scheme uses picture books as a focal point and allows the children to explore complex subject matter in an accessible way.
