Me In My World (MIMW) is our bespoke scheme of work for SMSC: spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The personal growth and development of our pupils is at the heart of our core values as a school. This curriculum relates to UNICEF Article 2, for the Rights of the Child, which applies to every child without discrimination.


We believe that our children should be developed as well-rounded, young people: equipped with the knowledge, skills and understanding to become responsible, global citizens of good character, able to make a valuable contribution to society; live in harmony alongside people of all races, colours and creeds, and have the skills for future learning and the world of work.


IDENTIFY: different feelings, views and opinions; be confident to express our own and value the opinions of others.
TAKE RISKS: in our learning (but know how to stay safe at home and in the community.)
DEVELOP: an understanding of how our actions affect others and understand that people have different cultures and may behave differently; achieve personal growth and development of good character.
MAKE: healthy life-choices and be confident of saying no to things that might harm us.
UNDERSTAND: money - earning, saving and spending, and how money has different values to different people.
USE: ICT confidently and safely and to be able to know who to talk to if we are ever unsure or uncomfortable.


So that all children are:
Resourceful and engaged in purposeful play using key vocabulary and asking questions.
Resilient when things go wrong (as they do!).
Reciprocal and can share their ideas by listening and explaining.
Reflective and use their knowledge and skills to make links with other areas.


We want our children to leave Ryders Hayes being confident young citizens, of good character; risk-takers who are emotionally literate with a strong sense of kindness, fairness, tolerance and morality driving them to achieve for themselves and others.
Our children are aware of their rights (UNICEF) and should be future ambassadors as global citizens.
Our children uphold British Values, and should be confident to discuss and challenge any prejudice or inequality.

Our children will have highly-develop skills and cultural capital for future learning and the world of work; have raised aspirations and improved social mobility as a result.

Spiritual: Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.

Moral: Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views and have an appreciation of British Values.

Social: Investigate moral issues; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the fundamental values of British democracy.

Cultural: Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in cultural opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.
For SMSC we have a whole school curriculum overview. Our planning focuses on the following areas: Online Safety; Britain and Diversity; Anti-bullying; Equality; Challenging Stereotypes; Drugs and Alcohol; Promoting Diversity and Challenging Homophobia and Sex Education and Relationships.

We are also a Rights Respecting GOLD School which is linked to our school policies and part of our day to day culture at Ryders Hayes School.

Please take some time to look at the documents which makes clear how we promote SMSC across our school and for our pupils.
