Rights, respect and responsibility (RRR)


Spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) education has been part of the Ofsted framework for schools since it was developed, offering clearer definitions and criteria, although these have varied slightly with each new version of the framework. It has considerable bearing on the grade awarded by Ofsted inspectors and over recent years we have found that RRE and SMSC are mutually supportive, enhancing each other with benefits to both pupils and the school.

Look out for SMSC training opportunities which always contain an RRE perspective.
