At Hogarth Primary School, the teaching of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Education is made explicit through RE, PSHE and circle times held within each class. Children are taught to be physically and emotionally healthy, to look after their own and others' wellbeing and to be safe. As a school, we use the resources provided by the PSHE Association and we follow the Essex syllabus for RE.
SMSC is also implicit and woven into everything that we do- through our school ethos and values, school assemblies, our Healthy Schools status, our interactions with peers and staff and learning through our creative curriculum. We want children to be CONFIDENT individuals.

At Hogarth Primary School, we are a multi -faith community, in which everyone is expected to listen and respect the thoughts and beliefs of others.
Through Religious Education we engage, challenge and encourage children to explore their spiritual, cultural and moral development. We strive to develop and promote respectful and tolerant citizens. We teach British Values within our teaching and develop a secure understanding in pupils of how religions and beliefs contribute to our society.
We strive to ensure all learners are "CONFIDENT" to recognise and embrace differences and similarities of other cultures in our school and wider community.
We plan our Religious Education curriculum in accordance with the Essex Agreed Syllabus for R.E (Explore). We ensure that the topics studied build on prior learning. We offer opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their skills and knowledge in each unit.
Our teaching enables children to extend and develop their own understanding of values, promotes their spiritual well being and moral compass. We encourage children to think about and express their own views and values by having interesting discussions and using visual prompts and resources.
We use assembly time to celebrate religious holidays and Holy Days and often have guest speakers.
Early Years deliver their RE content through their PSHE and Knowledge of the World curriculum.
