MIMW stands for Me In My World which is our bespoke scheme of work for SMSC. SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.

As part of work in this area, it meets Article 2 for the Rights of the Child where they apply to every child without discrimination.

We believe children will become global citizens by knowing how to stay safe at home and in society.

We want every pupil to be able to identify and express different feelings.
We want all children to be able to take risks in their learning but know how to stay safe at home and in the community.
We want them to have an understanding of how their actions affect others and also to understand that people may behave differently.
We want children to be able to make healthy choices in life and be confident on saying no to things that might harm them.
We aim for children to have an understanding of money: earning, saving and spending. We also want them to develop an understanding of how money has different values to different people.
We aim for children to be able to use ICT confidently and safely and to be able to know who to talk to if they 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.

AWE: (and what else?)
We would like children to leave Ryders Hayes being confident risk takers who are emotionally literate with a strong sense of kindness driving them to achieve.
Our children are aware of their rights (UNICEF)
We want all children to be aware of British Values.

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 and 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 culture 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 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.
