SMSC in the Inspecting equalities Briefing

posted 30 Apr 2013, 02:53 by Daniel O'Brien
In relation to SMSC, point 17 in the "Briefing for section 5 inspection" states:

"A key aspect in relation to equality to be inspected and reported on is how well the school is promoting the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Schools should have strategies for promoting and monitoring participation by learners in all the opportunities that the school provides and strategies for tackling any discriminatory or oppressive behaviour. Inspectors should consider how well schools know about which groups of pupils are benefiting from extra support or opportunities or not."

It's interesting that Ofsted want to see "strategies for promoting and monitoring participation by learners in all the opportunities that the school provides".

How does your school monitor participation?
We've designed the SMSC Grid to do just that! Why not try it for yourself?
